What do federal employees think of their workplace?

(Pam Tobey/The Washington Post)

Take a look for yourself.

This year more than 266,000 federal employees participated in this year’s Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey, conducted by the Office of Personnel Management. For our reporting purposes, we took a closer look at how employees rated their agencies in four key categories: leadership and knowledge management, results-oriented performance culture, talent management and job satisfaction.

This chart demonstrates how agencies did: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which regularly scores high on employee surveys, topped the list in each of the four categories, while NASA and the Federal Trade Commission also did well. Click here to see how other agencies fared.

And this new sortable graphic allows you to see which agencies scored the highest in each of the four areas. (Agencies are graded on a 1-100 scale.)

Take a look at the data, see if you agree or disagree, and then share your thoughts on the data in the comments section below.
