    I have been working at NAIP - Naval Acquisition Intern Program

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn and advance in your career at an accelerated rate. Benefits, salary, training is beyond expectations. The supervisors, team leads, mentors, and co-workers are excellent at helping when you need help. Management seems to really care about their employees and gives them every chance to excel at their job. The training opportunities alone are outstanding.

    Cons

    Lots of training and courses in the beginning of the program. The only downsides would be that Government workers like to get to work really early in the morning :). In the beginning things can be overwhelming but you are learning the basic skills to be an advanced competency BFM Lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management is top-notch.

    I worked at NAIP - Naval Acquisition Intern Program full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Rapidly advance to GS-12. Guaranteed a position at NAVSEA HQ. Work is not too demanding.

    Cons

    The program is poorly run. You have to do a lot of networking and leg-work yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually use the feedback you have received from current and former Interns. Many problems would be easy to fix by just simply communicating more effectively and providing better documentation and advice to Interns.

    Negative Outlook
  3.  

    Get mixed up in the beaurocracy.

    I have been working at NAIP - Naval Acquisition Intern Program

    Pros

    Most people in my department leave by 4 or 5 pm and have every other Friday off. The benefits are amazing, as will be for most government jobs. Easy work that is not very demanding.

    Cons

    This is a program for people that have side projects that they want to pursue. It gives you an easy job with amazing job security and allows you to have you personal time to yourself. If you are seeking an opportunity that challenges you and goes beyond clerical work and spending most of your days chatting with coworkers or waiting for papers to be sent to you, then this is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I was interviewing the leadership stressed having the ability to use analytical skills in negotiations with firms. When in reality there is not much analysis that goes into it. People are given less responsibilities then what is promised during interviews.
