DOD EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Information Technology Supervisor (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsWorking for the DoD is very satisfying. The majority of DoD commands are extremely family friendly, flexible work hours and the pay is very competitive. Benefit to working for the Government are rules and regulations are governed by Federal Law.

ConsLocal policies are typically governed by the senior management who are not always in touch with the work force. Unless you've worked for the government or served in the military, it can be very difficult to hire on into the government unless direct hire authority has been granted by OPM.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you get an opportunity to hire on to the Department of Defense, you should take advantage of it. It's very rewarding.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
