ProsThey have a great gym and if you have the luck of getting a supervisor that will allow you to telework thats great.

ConsNot organized, lack of planning, no teamwork, blame game all the time, lots of clueless managers, etc

DISA exhibits excellent growth opportunities with an atmosphere of respect and unity.

IT Specialist (Current Employee)
Ogden, UT

I have been working at US Defense Information Systems Agency full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIndividuals who are anxious to learn and grow will enjoy working for DISA. Innovation is encouraged and rewarded. Work/life balance is a high priority across the organization. DISA encourages a professional and safe work environment.

ConsThere is a lot of flexibility in how things are done at DISA. This can make it difficult to know what activities are acceptable and creates a lack of consistency. Again, this lack of standards is a great opportunity for improvement and such improvement are encouraged by organization leadership.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue developing an environment of innovation and communication.
