    I worked at NATO C3 Agency full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people, interesting work. You get to work with many people from all over NATO. Many contacts with industry making it very easy to set up your next job elsewhere.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, difficult travel department. Hiring is only by 3 year contract. You are locked into their pension plan if you work more than 2 contracts. this may be beneficial for some, but the system is horribly mismanaged by the bank.

    I worked at NATO C3 Agency as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very interesting subjects covered, a feeling that you are doing something for the wider community. A great package (all of it tax free)

    Cons

    A 3 year contract structure that always put you on edge, combined with with management that is solely concerned with their survival. The management seems strangely (!) immune to the 3 year cotnract strictures and never are fired no matter how incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try managing your staff not just your careers.

    I have been working at NATO C3 Agency

    Pros

    A forward-thinking technology company in the public sector with an excellent tax-free remuneration package, worldwide health care and generous vacations, combined with a wide variety of interesting defence technology projects that are supporting the real needs of coalition forces in current operations and for the future. Excellent training opportunities.

    Cons

    Limited promotion prospects - need to apply for a new post. Three year contracts, most of which are typically renewed 2 or 3 times before staff must leave. This is to encourage staff rotation, bringing in new skills from the nations - although around 10% of staff are retained indefinitely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating! Keep the positive changes coming!
