Current Employee - Aviation Operations Specialist

I have been working at US Department of Defense full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

A lifetime membership to a non-advertised brotherhood known formally as the NCO Corps. The opportunity to grow as a leader and develop learning skills that go beyond the classroom.

Cons

The hours can be long, and not every job holds a lot of glamour. In the end there is good and bad to all careers, serving in the military is and always will be what toy make it. Not really a whole lot of bad things to say.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never forget that you weren't always at the top. If the focus is on the team in the trench, that team will create miracles.

    Current Employee - Plans & Operations Specialist, GS-11-0301 in Fort Lee, VA

    I have been working at US Department of Defense full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strict adherence to 40 hour work week, substantial annual leave and sick leave is an immediate benefit. Also provide several different options for health insurance.

    Cons

    The office culture in the DPTMS Directorate, in the Garrison, is horrible. There is a leadership vacuum, and a universal acceptance of poor performance and apathy (from 2011 thru 2014)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Demonstrate commitment to transparency and openness to significantly improve morale, engagement and productivity.
