Really great, family friendly environment with strong team cohesion

Program Analyst (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsGood team environment, respect for your family/personal level, rewarding of hard work, and great opportunities for travel (even young people)

ConsPaperwork. If a Congressman happens to be visiting a country you are working on you have to stop everything to write a briefer and get it through clearance, which can eat up more of your day than you would like. Also, there are too many meetings, which can make it hard to get your work done.

Advice to Senior ManagementFewer meetings. And find a faster way to deal with clearances/briefers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
