    Contract Specialist

    Contract Specialist (Current Employee)

    Good place to work.

    Cyber Engineer (Current Employee)
    Dahlgren, VA

    ProsTons of opportunities to chose from as far as type of work.

    ConsSome department management types do not trust their employees. This was made evident by a switch that I made between departments, which was from a more trusting environment to one in which Big Brother was obviously present.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the extreme amount of paperwork required to order IT equipment. The amount of paperwork required to put in an order for less than $15,000 worth of computers is ridiculous. I'd guess that over half that amount is spent in oversight labor.

    NSWC Dahlgren Review

    Electrical Engineer (Former Employee)

    Pros- Good salary (Washington DC locality pay)
    - Broad range of technical opportunities
    - Excellent benefits and education support (paid for my Master's Degree)
