    Pros

    The technical and analytic workforce is very strong. of course there are a few lame ducks, but overall the talent is high and people's drive to do well is very strong. much stronger than most of the contractor workforce. Ability to constantly learn and change: There is so much variety in the mission, that you can move every few years to an entirely different area and only touch a portion in your full career. Overall, very caring culture that supports work-life balance and people's personal requirements. supportive of families. dad's can take 8 weeks of sick leave at children's birth. work schedules for most orgs are flexible.

    Cons

    post-Snowden has lowered morale. radical innovation is hard, because of bureaucracy. it's harder to move around than it was 10+ years ago. bureaucracy is always painful. management is a mixed bag, often Peter principle. getting a clearance takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    focus on ways to empower people and help them cut through frustrating parts of government, like contracting and process

It takes more than a decoder ring to play spy in today's international intelligence game. That's why there's the National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/CSS), the Department of Defense's cryptologic organization. The NSA/CSS makes and breaks codes and ciphers to understand the secret communication of foreign adversaries and protect classified and sensitive US government information. The NSA/CSS provides intelligence to the White House, executive agencies (such as the CIA), Joint Chiefs of Staff, military commanders-in-chief, and US ... More
