John - I agree that management has no loyalty to employees. It becomes more and more difficult to care about the job. I see so much half-assed work get done on a daily basis that it just kills me. My lead, who is one of the great 14s that I know, once told me that my own personal work ethic would prevent me from becoming apathetic. My desire to do great work would outshine the beating I take in the service. This was true until they extended our pay and hiring freeze again. I am lucky. I am a 9. Most people will never get that. But everyone else around me save for a small group of us are 12/13s. Why promote me ever when I am doing that level work now without the pay? As for USAJOBS, I have no faith in that process. Most of the jobs I want are 12/13 but time in grade kills me. So, I am stuck. I will say this, I know how tough it is for FA and I admire the work you all do. I make training for FA and am proud to call you all my clients, but that does not make my days any easier.
Good question, Rod. I too am finding it harder and harder to do my job. Given management's utter lack of loyalty to employees, and given the fact that there are no opportunities for advancement, I often wonder if it's worth trying hard to do the best I can. High quality performance sure doesn't seem to be appreciated or rewarded. I guess I'll just mark time until something better comes along. I am currently applying for anything that I might be remotely qualified for on USAJOBS.
Greetings all. I am from the Austin area. I currently work in the W&I Learning and Education branch. I have read many of your posts and I admire the passion that still burns within many of you. The only reason I do my job well anymore is because I consider it my duty to honor all the taxpayers that pay my salary and keep me fed and protected. However, it becomes harder and harder to do my job each day as entrenched antiquated views hinder my ability to contribute in a meaningful way to this organization. So, I ask, how do you maintain your sense of loyalty when it seems that we have all been sacrificed at the alter to appease the public for the sins of our elected officials?

Hey IRS Employees: Here's a new blog post that features one of your very own - and an Army veteran at that!
I am a Tax Examiner Technician at the Kansas City Service Center, with AMTAP (Accounts Management Taxpayer Assurance Program), which has just recently been reorganized under the brand-spanking new RICS (Return Integrity and Correspondence Services). Essentially we are pre-refund revenue protection , the red-headed step-child of CI.
John, I guess I should have stated that I work BMF (not IMF), so our seasons are a bit different. My department's been furloughed since July 4th. I suppose that I knew my job was seasonal when I first started, but our season has also shortened since then from 10 months out of the year to 9 months (if we're lucky).
There are benefits to working for the IRS, but right now, I am a bit pessimistic about it all, haha.
