    I have been working at NSA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some really great missions and offices to work on. You may have to hunt for them to get them. The leave can be good. They allow for you to buld up extra time that you can take off later. Most senior employees get enough leave to take a month off with out additional work hours.

    Cons

    Don't always know what your office will be like before you get there. Most employees can leave for a salary increase doing a similar job in the Defense contractors. Some leave and double their salaries. Promotions and wage increases are somewhat random at times. The cost of living freezes make it harder and harder to stay in the area.

    Pros

    Cool stuff you can barely do anywhere else, many development programs, amazing travel opportunities

    Cons

    salary is lower than the average engineer in the commercial world, wish it had more locations in Maryland than just one main area.
