I have been working at FBI full-time for more than a year

Pros

The FBI remains the premier law enforcement and intelligence agency in the US. Numerous opportunities are available for a variety of positions, not just special agent.

Cons

The immense size and bureaucratic structure can make certain aspects of employment there challenging. Fortunately, most staff work together as a team, contributing to a professional culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be mindful of how bureaucratic the agency can be in assigning tasks.

    Pros

    Stability, Decent Pay, Constantly evolving responsibilities, Chance for mobility

    Cons

    Too many positions filled with non-Special Agents who know nothing about investigations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit going outside to fill internal positions. There's a real trend on hiring people with minimal skills, especially in the cyber security realm, and paying them more than Special Agents with twenty + years on the job.
