Overall nice place to work, not much chance for advancement unless you're military or a higher power official

Visual Information Specialist (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGreat benefits, location, decent pay and amenities.

ConsNot much chance for advancement for intellectual worker bees and too many upper officials making too much money

Advice to Senior ManagementCut from the top, increase the salaries a bit for the tech, scientist, smart civilian workforce as they have no other means of meaningful recognition as opposed to military and upper officials. Plenty of intelligent folks around here not getting the recognition to motivate them to stay on board except benefits.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
