IT Program Manager for DoD

Program Manager (Current Employee) Alexandria, VA

ProsWorking for DoD gives you an opportunity to support some very unique, interesting, and important missions and technology.

ConsNot all DoD work is unique or interesting, though I think most of it is important. If you are a hands-on tech type, I would tend to stay away as most of that work gets contracted out and the gov't folks just do oversight and "management." It is very difficult to move up the ranks and mainatin a tech focus.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
