It’s Official—GAO Is a Great Place to Work!

Posted on December 06, 2017


Once again, GAO has been named one of the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government. We held our rank as the 2nd best place to work among midsize federal agencies in 2017, and even improved our score from last year.

In addition, we were again No. 1 for our support of diversity for midsize agencies—the third year in a row that our scores went up for this category.

Best Places to Work

U.S. Comptroller General Gene L. Dodaro commented on the rankings:

GAO’s place in the 2017 ratings confirms our reputation as a leading employer, one with a compelling mission and an outstanding workforce. Our ranking also demonstrates GAO’s dedication to an open and inclusive work environment for all employees.

Issued every year, the Partnership for Public Service’s rankings provide insights into how federal employees view their jobs and offices. The 2017 ratings reflect the perspectives of 498,000 federal workers at more than 200 organizations, based on survey responses on various workplace issues.
