FTC Again Named One of the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government

Agency tops several categories in 2019 ratings

For Release

The FTC ranked second overall out of 25 mid-sized agencies surveyed by the non-profit, non-partisan Partnership for Public Service, maintaining its position among the top-rated places to work in the federal government for 2019.

The Commission earned the top spot in six categories: effective leadership; employee skills-mission match; strategic management; teamwork; innovation; and performance-based rewards and advancement. In addition, the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection and Bureau of Competition both ranked in the top 10 out of a total of 420 subcomponents from all federal agencies.

“The FTC’s dedicated and talented workforce are committed to fulfilling our mission of protecting consumers and promoting competition,” said FTC Chairman Joe Simons. “I am grateful to my colleagues for making the FTC such a wonderful place to work.”

The Best Places to Work rankings are a comprehensive assessment of federal civil servants and how they view their jobs and workplaces. In 2019, the rankings took into account the views of more than 883,000 civil servants from 490 federal agencies and their subcomponents on a wide range of workplace topics.

The Federal Trade Commission works to promote competition, and protect and educate consumers.
