    I have been working at US Defense Logistics Agency

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to grow at DLA. Not only are you supporting a commendable mission by making sure that the warfighter's needs are met, but you also have many opportunities for personal growth and development throughout the organization.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get accustomed to the environment if you have not had previous federal experience. The pace of the work is much different than the private sector, and it takes some time to learn all the wonderful acronyms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management at DLA is very strong, although the major leadership positions do have quite a bit of turnover. However, this seems to be quite normal in this organization. However, this sometimes creates confusion about the priorities of the organization as every single leader strives to leave their mark within a short 2-3 year "term." As such, the whole organization sometimes flounders in between changes due to a preparation for a "new" set of organizational priorities. Studies in organizational change and behavior seem to be all the rage now, and I think that a long-term view should become a top priority for leadership. Again, this may be difficult to achieve due to the constant leadership changes.

    I have been working at US Defense Logistics Agency full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional organization with leadership committed to the mission and it's people.

    Cons

    Get better at 3 year rule and the logic process of granting extensions. It seems like the PLFA's have different sets of rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in your people.
