    I have been working at US Defense Security Service full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Motivated, intelligent co-workers, great direct supervisor/management, fast-paced environment, indepently set schedules.

    Cons

    Current director forgot about the employees, cutting any form of flexible work schedule and decided that metrics will save everything, when it is actually employees getting into the field which directly supports the mission. Most employees in the capitol region are looking to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at US Defense Security Service as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working at the Defense Security Service opened my eyes to things surrounding secuirty clearances for different companies and people.

    Cons

    It is also a place where you have to be careful about what you say and do in public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to hire more disabled veterans and treat the contractors that work with not as there equal, but as there counterparts in maintaining the proper clearances.
