Where FBI employees are most frustrated
By Katie Park, Adam Goldman and Steven Rich, Published: March 29, 2015
Each year the FBI issues a questionnaire known as a climate survey to its 35,000 employees. The surveys, which The Washington Post obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, illuminate workplace issues among agents and support staff in the agency’s 56 field offices. Responses are rated on a scale of 1-5 and divided into four categories — green, light green, yellow and red — that the FBI uses to detect problem areas. Read related article.
