    I worked at US Department of Homeland Security full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked at TSA HQs for eight months there were a few good staff members.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership with management, favoritism, no sense of security and lack of trust with co-workers. I would not recommend this job to a friend. TSA has the highest turnover rate in the federal government.... That should tell you something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly train management.

    Pros

    They have resources to do the job, unlimited computer help, and clerical support.

    Cons

    Top management didn't understand how to manage, leaving some people unsupervised, often the ones who couldn't be unsupervised. Training is limited to what the minimum requirement might be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with the peons more, and find out who is really working and who isn't. My boss constantly complained about being overworked. He complained so hard and so frequently that he didn't have time to do his own work.
