    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at New Directions Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supporting military IT operations at all levels. Service Desk, Network Operations, Information Assurance (Cyber Security). Good working environment with lots of opportunity for skilled IT personnel. The customer is very satisfied with the quality of the company. The company is relatively small so the employees have access to the CEO pretty easily. He is very approachable and encourages communication.

    Cons

    Government contracts limit work that could be done. The company is ready, the contracts hold us back. Work locations are few, but are expanding to other locations. Management style depends on department, some are very efficient, others no so.

    Advice to Management

    Send middle managers to leadership and or communication training that would assist them in communicating expectations to workers in a consistent manner.

    Information Systems Security Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New Directions Technologies (Port Hueneme CBC Base, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was a small panel of the director, a network engineer in the department and the lead manager. Very informal and friendly. I have extensive background in networking, server and helpdesk support, so they really wanted to know which position I was interested in. The lead engineer was very satisfied with my background and mentioned there were several projects he could hand over pretty quickly. The lead manager was more reserved and skeptical. There was a drawing with work processes unique to Cyber Security that he pointed to and quizzed me on what each phase/acronym meant. I got about 80 % of them since I was in a Cyber Security program that covered these areas. He was surprised that I knew so many since I had not worked for that military branch.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you understand that the Information System Security Engineer position is not a hands on technical position but one more of an auditor and that there would be a lot of documentation to support the customer security accreditation requirements?   1 Answer
