    I have been working at US Strategic Command full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work with some very smart people, friendly, talkative, dedicated to doing a good job. Insightful. Decent office work environment, cafeteria/post office/barber/bank in the building. Very large gym a 2 min walk from building, with reasonable opportunities to exercise during the day. Occasionally excellent opportunity to influence acquisition programs and national defense.

    Cons

    Lots of "everyone knows that's how you do it", bureaucracy and roadblocks. Discouraging insight into how the government as a whole blows money, without any clear way to stop it most of the time. Lots of vague projects with very specific, changing, odd requirements for upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall great place to work, but no one seems to know that the process is broken, the scope unwieldy because it would imply weakness I suppose. There are so many layers that one hand doesn't clearly know what the 486 other hands are doing across government, and the answer always seems to be "more and more stable funding." That's not the answer. A massive culture change needs to occur to be more influential in gov't, instead of simply playing the same losing game. Keep up the great work environment though, because I think there are a lot of brilliant people who have enough...resilience...to make positive change even in a challenging environment.
