Pros

DAU is a great place to support up and coming DoD employees as they learn the ropes of acquisition in the DoD. Great opportunity to lift up the next generation and provide real world experience to those just starting out.

Cons

Limited upword mobility. There are a large number of instructors but the leadership pyramid gets pretty narrow pretty quick. Also, the university does not always practice what it preaches in terms of processes and there is less communication than what i find in corporate side.

Advice to Management

Communicate, communicate, communicate. There really needs to be an active effort to develop and get people to embrace a vision and brand.

    Pros

    Opportunity to apply 35 years of program experience with professionals from across the Department of Defense

    Cons

    The socio-political environment of acquisition is constantly changing and it is difficult to have time to reflect before new changes are implemented.

    Advice to Management

    More praxis needs to be incorporated as part of the learning construct.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good work/life balance, good professional development opportunities, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    May have a great deal of travel 30-40%. Hardly interact with management and senior management due to independent work load.

    Advice to Management

    None. It is what it is and changes to make this business better would be difficult. They do their best.
