Eliot Engel Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Eliot Lance Engel; born February 18, 1947 is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for New York's 16th congressional district since 2013. A member of the Democratic Party, he first entered Congress in 1989. Engel represented New York's 19th congressional district for two terms and New York's 17th congressional district for ten terms. His district currently contains parts of the Bronx and Westchester County. In 2019, following Democratic gains in the 2018 elections, he took over as Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee; he previously was its ranking member from 2013, following Howard Berman's reelection defeat in 2012.
In March 2009, the Associated Press reported that Eliot Engel had been taking an annual tax credit on his Potomac, Maryland, residence for at least ten years (cumulatively receiving thousands of dollars in tax credits), despite the fact that the credit is reserved for people who declare Maryland their primary residence. Maryland officials revoked the tax credit. The matter was reviewed by the Office of Congressional Ethics, which also looked into similar tax credits claimed by three other members of the House. The OCE eventually ended its review on Engel and two of the other members of Congress (Doris Matsui and Edolphus Towns) without recommending further investigation by the House Ethics Committee.
Houseman/Project (Current Employee) says"We work under unhealthy environments and only have 1 bathroom for over 50 male employees. We work in the basement where there are roaches and rats. Scheduling screws you over by compiling days so that you work 9 days straight but only paid for the days you worked the week on. Cons: Scheduling."
Analyst (Current Employee) says"No clear direction in leadership or how to advance. Inadequate pay and no clearly defined scale or roles. Works better for those who are in good ol boy network."
Senior Congressional Assistant (Former Employee) says"Things have changed since I worked for Congress and it may be better or worse than before. The typical employee had very little if any real world experience in yet were assisting lawmakers in drafting both laws and regulations at the federal level. Most employees had graduated college but had little or no practical experience. Cons: Living in Washington DC area"
Maintenance and Inventory Control (Current Employee) says"not a place for growth , its all about politics. communication with my supervisor is off and doesn't exist. you move up on who you know. those at the top hire family members to fill positions"
Page (Former Employee) says"i start work at 7 am until 6 pm. my work is filing congressman folders, xerox or copy papers, and i also run some errands to each departments. the job is exciting but its a contract for 10 or 20 days. Cons: short break"
Congressional Agriculture Liaison (Former Employee) says"Don't have much to say... I was an intern at the US Congress working for a FL Congressman. Super cool internship... great way to spend a college summer if you want the experience."

Congress (Former Employee) says"I did not work here, congress is not a job. They are referring to the structural congress for structural engineers which I didn't like. Consider world of concrete instead!"

Estagiária (Former Employee) says"Aprende muito"
Special Assistant (Former Employee) says"Paperwork beyond your wildest dreams. Correspondence work took up way too much time. Get a committee job if you can in order to avoid constituent work. Cons: Insane amount of paperwork"
Elementary Teacher (Former Employee) says"A school environment that encourages growth for all students, in a nontraditional calendar. It is beneficial, as there is amiable space between holidays and increased opportunities for students being involved in community events year round,"
N/A (Current Employee) says"The standard schedule here is 8AM-4:30PM for most employees when we are not in a Legislative Session. I have learned a lot throughout my time here. My co-workers are very easy to get along with and most of them are very knowledgeable in their craft(s). The hardest part of the job has to do with the 12+ hours a day you will be working during a Legislative Session. Thankfully, that only occurs the first four months of every year. Advancement opportunity here is very political unfortunately, meaning who you know typically determines your advancement. The only other way to get a raise is to accept a job offer from somewhere else and find out your worth. While mid-level management here is very in tune with their team, upper-level management is not and many employees here are frustrated as a result. Cons: Advancement and raises are strictly political"

Research Assistant (Current Employee) says"Can be a great place to work, but it is all dependent on your Rep/Senator's involvement in policy and debate and ability to get things done. Success or lackthereof is more about the senator or rep that you work for than it has to do with your motivation and policy interest. Cons: inconsistent expectations"
