Federal Employees Like Their Jobs, Survey Says

Sixty-three percent of federal employees say they are satisfied with their jobs, according to the third annual survey conducted by the National Partnership for Reinventing Government (NPR) and the Office of Personnel Management. Food and Drug Administration employees gave their agency the most favorable rating. NASA, which was the most highly rated last year, and the General Services Administration also got high ratings.
