    I worked at CIA full-time

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

    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.
