Great place to work

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsCoast Guard headquarters is a great place to work. The Coast Guard has a great mission and management is generally family friendly.

In the Summer of 2013, the Coast Guard will move to the Saint Elizabeth's campus in SE DC, which poses some commuting problems if you don't ride the metro or have a van/car pool.

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