We work in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
To me, the most satisfying thing about working at the FTC is my ability to perform my own analysis of data and other evidence. Based on that, I make independent recommendations to my managers and the Commission. In all of my years here, I have never once been pressured to take a particular position on any investigation or litigation.
Even in the cases where my analysis doesn’t carry the day, I know that it is always heard and given full consideration. Here at the FTC, we work in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
