Work Expierence

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
Quantico, VA

I worked at US Defense Security Service as a contractor for more than a year

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementMy 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsSteady government work. If you don't like to take work home, this is the place for you
Respect from rest of contractor community

ConsManagement will work you to death if you let them
Little to no recognition for job well done
Want you to be a cog in a machine and not make waves

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your employees. Give them the ability to make more decisions. Stop treating everyone like they are five years old.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
