    Pros

    Travel, training,opportunity to see intelligence work from the inside

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement for minorities, discrimination in recruitment, playing politics in order to get the cushy assignments,

    Advice to Management

    Many employees are not performing to standards yet they are appointed team leads and supervisors. Higher level employees abuse their government credit cards and they get to keep their jobs while the lower level employees are forced to resigned instead of being offered financial counseling and being put on a repayment plan through payroll deduction. Its idiotic that you spend thousands of dollars to clear these employees yet instead of working with them you boot them out the door but keep your higher level employees who are not the ones actually doing the work.

    Pros

    great opportunities for travel; smart people

    Cons

    Everyone is overly suspicous about everything and everyone--even coworkers, friends and family. Disturbing. By the same token, very incestuous. encouraged to marry each other and bring in family members. Too much religious references in the work place, which is totally inappropriate.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need more training, especially former Analysts who are not extroverts, nor are they naturally good working with people.
