    Pros

    Promotion potential is high, great benefit package, opportunities to travel around the world, many training opportunities available, will help pay for a masters degree, high job stability, one of the best retirement programs available.

    Cons

    A very big agency that takes time to understand all aspects of its business. Most jobs at DLA require a security clearance, which could be a problem for some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give new employees more responsibility and a voice in managerial decisions.

    I have been working at US Defense Logistics Agency

    Pros

    Can select technology that best fits solution. Also flex time work hours and teleworking. If you are half-way competent, you will look like a rock star.

    Cons

    Some offices have pre-disposition towards technology solutions without there being a need. Often resources are wasted for political reasons. Employee workforce seems hyper-focused on retirement, not on getting mission accomplished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat entire workforce as one unit. Current splits in handling contractors and employees creates division between workers, yet the contractors provide a necessary and unique skill, often back-filing for employees who lack experience, training, education, skill, and motivation.
