    I have been working at US Defense Security Service full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Motivated, intelligent co-workers, great direct supervisor/management, fast-paced environment, indepently set schedules.

    Cons

    Current director forgot about the employees, cutting any form of flexible work schedule and decided that metrics will save everything, when it is actually employees getting into the field which directly supports the mission. Most employees in the capitol region are looking to leave.
