Morale at Homeland Security has 'skyrocketed' under Trump
At WExaminer by
When the House Subcommittee on Government Operations held a hearing in April 2015 titled "The Worst Places to Work in the Federal Government," an agency manager at the Department of Homeland Security was called in to testify.
"[DHS] rests as the worst place to work among cabinet agencies," Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said at the time.
The third largest federal department had just received an abysmal 44 percent score in the annual Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. Fewer than half of its staff felt that morale, leadership and compensation deserved positive ratings.
But those days are gone, according to DHS employees and one senior administration official who spoke to the Washington Examiner on the condition of anonymity.
