DOJ Among Best Places to Work Survey Finds

Maybe this explains why Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is so reluctant to quit. A survey found the Department of Justice to be among the "best places to work" in the government. Of course, some officials no longer work there after a controversy over firing prosecutors. But Gonzales remains. And he sent a memo May 17, celebrating his department's high ranking. He thanks the remaining employees for their "willingness to put service before self."
