Making Critical Contributions to National Security

Associate Professional Staff I (Current Employee) Laurel, MD

ProsThere are a lot of smart people trying to make good contributions to national security. I have been involved in some really fun projects that have been implemented and made an improvement to the sponsors that we have worked with.

ConsManagement in some departments do not have a clear direction or good answers for their sponsors.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
