Make an assessment of worker to management ratio

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

As an example; an office of 24, management consists of 1 Associate Commissioner, 1 Deputy Associate Commissioner, 1 GS-15 Director, 1 Executive Officer, 3 GS-14 Division Directors, 1 GS-14 Senior Advisor, 1 GS-13 Supervisor; 9 managers to manage 15 people? This is not a joke, the staff could be more efficiently managed to ensure individuals have ample responsibility for the positions they hold. Perhaps I am the only one that thinks this way but to me, it is surprising that the government does not have standards on management to employee ratio nor that agencies not consider this as a red flag to combine resources (components).

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
