I have been working at US Department of Homeland Security (more than a year)

Pros

If you're in the right program office, and management is good, you're lucky

Cons

Very top heavy in my office; discouraging for those of us trying to switch and/or advance in your career!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have worked for the agency a little over a year and have noticed how "top heavy" you are! Opportunist for lower GS grades need to be increased. Great place to work, but promotion potential is lacking :(

    Pros

    We have great benefits and a fast promotion rate as long as you do what we set out to do every day which is protect the traveling public.

    Cons

    It can be easy to get stuck in the same position for years because of a bad pass rating. other than that no other cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people who can greatly improve the way we do things are the officers that do the job day in and day out. Not the suits in the office, because they dont have to do it .

    Pros

    Higher grades than DOD. We are supporting those that can make a difference in our security.

    Cons

    New agency compared to most or DOD so all policies or new policies and ideas have to be agreed upon and approved in DC. But ultimately a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch out of DC into other areas of the U.S. Listen to employee ideas especially those with experience. Investigate all the turnover in leadership and employees --especially buyers and be willing to make changes.
