Current Employee - Security Manager

I have been working at US Department of Homeland Security full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

No two days are ever alike! If you are good at following basic guidelines and using your
"gut instinct" then it is a rewarding and challenging job.

Cons

No two days are ever alike. Many times you have to respond to irate passengers and to incidents that require you to make decisions that can have deadly consequences should you make the wrong decision.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am middle management, however, I would just say to treat people the way you would want to be treated.

    I worked at US Department of Homeland Security as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    -was able to contribute substantively to many projects
    -leadership very open to meeting with interns about projects, goals, career advice, etc.
    -floor staff reached out a lot to involve me in projects or meetings they thought I might find interesting
    -lots of training and professional development opportunities

    Cons

    -impossible to transition to employment, even after ten months of glowing reviews
    -refuses to sponsor even lowest-level security clearances for interns, even long-term interns, which limits the work that can be done
    -overall culture of the Department is quite petty
    -turnover is high because many use DHS to get into DoD/DoS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -more opportunities for interns to become employees
