great post! I can actually relate to your frustrations from all the way down here (GS-9). I think that may be part of what drives me because I want to change the status quo and find better ways of doing things. It might take a long time and I might get permanent neck damage, but someone’s got to do it. I’ve actually found that being a low rank allows me to ask “stupid questions” that people don’t ask because they are content with “because that’s the way it’s been done before.” My “stupid” questions have actually changed processes.
