The 2012 list of the best places to work in the Federal Government is out, and NASA claimed the top spot among large government agencies.

The Partnership for Public Service based the rankings on surveys from 700,000 civil servants, and employees gave NASA the best marks in several of the survey categories, including effective leadership and teamwork.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation took top marks among mid-sized agencies, and the Surface Transportation Board was the top ranked small agency.
