I have been working at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

Pros

NGA does work that positively impacts national security and our efforts to combat enemies abroad. I enjoy working there, and I believe that what I do contributes to our nations success.

Cons

The biggest con would be the DoD budget issues; and the on going struggle in congress to grapple said issues. It is difficult to an financially with so much uncertainty in Congress abou our budgets in the federal gov as a whole

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work

    I have been working at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

    Pros

    Only pay-for-performance agency in the federal government
    Greater opportunity to quickly increase salary versus other agencies in DoD
    Move into new DC facility next year

    Cons

    Poor vetting for first-line managers
    Becoming too much like DIA; losing distinct culture.
    Hiring too many analysts too quickly; just because billets are given does not mean we need them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Disappointed by poor planning for new DC-area facility. Regardless of what the numbers say, many offices are overstaffed with individuals slated to work shift schedules to accommodate overstaffing.

    Organization can seem too large

    The unknown about how the new facility will operate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Somewhere in middle management, the communication seems to break down. The town halls are good, but should be podcasted or available forveiwing at a workstation
