Strong analytical and quantitative skills are fundamental to a successful career at OMB, but other skills are equally important. For example, the pace of work and the demands of statutory deadlines require excellent communication skills. Although working at OMB involves learning the operations of a specific agency in great detail, there is no prerequisite for this kind of knowledge. Individuals with a specific interest are welcome, but so are generalists. Most OMB employees start at the Assistant Analyst or Analyst level.

What OMB Offers OMB is an excellent workplace for those people who enjoy a challenging, and at times fast paced working environment. OMB offers intellectual challenge and a sense of pride in one's work. OMB is a major force for changing the way the city is run, and that change is the result of the interaction between the various areas within OMB: the Expense and Capital Budget task forces, Revenue Task Forces, Information Systems Management, the Office of Budget Review, the Finance and Legal Division, and the Personnel Management and Administration Division. Limits are set only by an individual's energy, intellect, and creativity. Furthermore, responsibility is given very early on: employees frequently receive additional and increased responsibilities after 1-2 years of being in their original assignment. OMB's policy is to fill vacancies from within whenever possible, and most senior positions are filled by promotions from within the agency. OMB tries to encourage professional growth and development through programs such as the OMB Institute, which provides training sessions for staff members.
