    I have been working at US Department of Defense full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Working as a civilian for the military is rough. The military leaders do not know the requirements of civilian employees and often try to treat civilians like military members demanding things like relocation, crappy hours, working terrible shifts. They will push and push until you push back and then when you finally do what is right you are viewed as trouble

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the rules of civilian employment

    Pros

    - Good job security
    - Good benefits
    - Excellent travel ops

    Cons

    - Working with government employees was one of the most eye opening and discouraging experience I have ever had. Coming from the private sector, I could only make it about 6 months before I had to leave. It takes a certain kind of person that enjoys that sort of environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Serious house cleaning is needed.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
