I have been working at FBI full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The FBI remains the premier law enforcement and intelligence agency in the US. Numerous opportunities are available for a variety of positions, not just special agent.

Cons

The immense size and bureaucratic structure can make certain aspects of employment there challenging. Fortunately, most staff work together as a team, contributing to a professional culture.

Advice to Management

Be mindful of how bureaucratic the agency can be in assigning tasks.

    I have been working at FBI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stability, Decent Pay, Constantly evolving responsibilities, Chance for mobility

    Cons

    Too many positions filled with non-Special Agents who know nothing about investigations.

    Advice to Management

    Quit going outside to fill internal positions. There's a real trend on hiring people with minimal skills, especially in the cyber security realm, and paying them more than Special Agents with twenty + years on the job.
