Pros

Pretty lax environment, a lot of friendly mid-level workers
Depending on specialization of field cool work and training opportunities and compensation
For people without advanced degrees good pay

Cons

Terrible Management. I doubt most of management know their workers when they are managing 100s of people and multiple positions. You really have to be within someone's social network to be noticed.
If you're young, and motivated looking for a highly energized job full of rewards and promotion I would not recommend this place. People do not get promoted and the office structure will be the same no matter when you come in. You see co-workers who contribute nothing getting rewarded equally if not better than you. A lot of bureaucracy and passive aggressive personalities in positions of power without ANY checks on them. Think hard if you commit yourself to this.

Advice to Management

Here's a riddle, I process 12 queries a day, the senior "mentor" next to me does 3, why does she get paid more again?

    I worked at NSA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was an analyst. It was interesting, meaningful work where you were generally treated well. The pay was pretty good, the work-balance very good, and the benefits were great. Smart, generally nice co-workers.

    Cons

    The Security organization is not to be trusted. They are a bunch of scared bureaucrats doing irrational things after the Snowden Fiasco.

    Advice to Management

    Take the Security organization out back and sh... uh, show them that they need to behave better.
