I have been working at US Defense Logistics Agency

Pros

Flexible work schedule, good pay, and benefits. Depending upon responsibilities there are opportunities for teleworking and a child care center that is subsidized next to the headquarters building.

Cons

Senior leadership too interested in addressing polictical agendas. Need too focus more on workforce development whcih is currently more of a slogan rather than a core principle.

    I have been working at US Defense Logistics Agency

    Pros

    It's a great environment, and there are a lot of benefits such as flex time, paid vacations. They value work/life balance.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be monotonous. You have to find other roles for yourself to keep yourself interested in the agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see more Leadership Development programs for new employees who are starting out in the federal agency.

    I worked at US Defense Logistics Agency full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team is one of the best, most professional groups of people I've seen pulled together in one place. They understand their role in this important international mission and they all pull together for the greater good.

    Cons

    The corporate ERP is antiquated and based on the manner in which the government "improves" its IT systems, buying new off the shelf technology is likely not going to happen anytime soon. It is effective, but not efficient and is about 3-5 years behind the fast movers in industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Optimize your storage profile. Drive the Services to a more efficient SKU footprint. Aggressively reduce and/or replace antiquated stocks. Validate war reserves with great scrutiny. Modernize all of your storage facilities and distribution points to take advantage of industry best practices.
