    Pros

    Great people, great learning experience, exposure to different aspects of this world is very enlightening. The agency promotes training which is great.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted, salary does not match duties and performance, hard to get past the red tape to take advantage of the different opportunities. Management lacks consistency is the guidance they give personnel on career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure how promotion panels are conducted, utilize individuals' talents, acknowledge and compensate personnel for their hard work, innovative ideas and contribution to the mission.
