    Challenging and dynamic

    Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsWhile everything is heavily dependent on what directorate and division you're in, overall I've found STRATCOM to be supportive of work-life balance. Most leaders are willing to help members and employees find a good fit for their talents, grow their expertise, and stretch their abilities.

    ConsIn some areas of the Command, it's difficult or impossible to see the results of your work. This sometimes aggravates the usual reluctance to hold civilian employees accountable for achieving results.
    As with any military organization, leadership changes and reorganizations frequently disrupt work, from minor tasks to major projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to support resiliency initiatives. You have some hard decisions coming with mandated personnel cuts... Choose carefully whether to retain people or positions.

    Great people/work environment, somewhat vague job

    Capability and Resource Integration Action Officer (Current Employee)
    Offutt AFB, NE

    ProsWork with some very smart people, friendly, talkative, dedicated to doing a good job. Insightful. Decent office work environment, cafeteria/post office/barber/bank in the building. Very large gym a 2 min walk from building, with reasonable opportunities to exercise during the day. Occasionally excellent opportunity to influence acquisition programs and national defense.

    ConsLots of "everyone knows that's how you do it", bureaucracy and roadblocks. Discouraging insight into how the government as a whole blows money, without any clear way to stop it most of the time. Lots of vague projects with very specific, changing, odd requirements for upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall great place to work, but no one seems to know that the process is broken, the scope unwieldy because it would imply weakness I suppose. There are so many layers that one hand doesn't clearly know what the 486 other hands are doing across government, and the answer always seems to be "more and more stable funding." That's not the answer. A massive culture change needs to occur to be more influential in gov't, instead of simply playing the same losing game. Keep up the great work environment though, because I think there are a lot of brilliant people who have enough...resilience...to make positive change even in a challenging environment.

    Great place to work with unique Joint Command opportunities.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Bellevue, NE

    ProsAbility to work with the different services in a Joint environment. Outstanding opportunities within the nuclear enterprise. Omaha was a great location. USSTRATCOM will be constructing their new HQs building soon.

    ConsDue to the nature and classification of some of the jobs, you tend to work behind closed doors and only see the different directorates if you make the effort or have to interact with them. Many of the directorates are located below ground with no windows. Not good location if you do not like winter.

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

    Great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live here.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat folks; STRATCOM boasts a large retired military community with widely varied experiences. Not a day goes by when you don't learn something.

    ConsFrequent turnover at the 2/3/4-Star level. Rapid changes in plans, policy and administrative details. 4-stars come here to die...and want to leave their legacy.

    Advice to Senior Management"it 'aint broken."

    A lot of work for not enough resources

    Program Analyst (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsMany dedicated people doing important missions. Descent work environment. Talented people.

    ConsSome units are working very hard and are under manned. Other units have too much free time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper and middle management must allocate resources to where the work is.

    The work is very important but very difficult standing up a command with very limited resources.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Fort Meade, MD

    ProsThe USG and DoD needs this command. It has important work everyday support the warfighter and the national priorities.

    ConsToo many Chiefs and not enough indians, resources are not to the level required for this important mission. It lacks its own building and has a too many constraints for doing its mission.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down, prioritize and say thank you...lead by example.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Peace is our product -- war is our profession!

    Operations Research Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsSupport the nation by supporting vital deterrence, space, cyberspace, and ISR missions.

    ConsUneven workload. Many divisions are undertasked and go home at four, while a dedicated few work a lot of unpaid overtime.

    People want to stay here, so not a lot of turnover; hence limited opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing.
