The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Office of General Counsel leapt to the top of the “Best Places to Work in the Federal Government” among agency subcomponents.
Last year, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which falls under the Commerce Department, took the top spot. FERC’s Office of General Counsel, though, still made the top five.
The rankings come from a report issued each year by Partnership for Public Service and Deloitte. Researchers take data from the Office of Personnel Management’s Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey as well as their own interviews to develop the rankings. Using answers to three questions, researchers generate an index out of 100 points.
