    I have been working at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at NGA is very interesting because the mission is relevant and ever evolving. Pay at NGA is very competitive, particularly for the Federal government. Pay wise, NGA is actually top heavy. It is one of the few government agencies where lots of people make over $100k. If you like to try new and exciting career options often, NGA is paradise. Employees are encouraged to move around from office to office and try new careers. We even have a formal program to help employees transition from one career path to another.

    Cons

    Although we adapt nimbly to progress our mission, we move slowly to address other internal issues, or potential upgrades. Sometimes, mid-level to lower level executive leaders micro-manage to the point that the red tape can become smothering just to make simple decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Please, stop letting your mid-level and lower level senior executive micro-manage the work force. Basic decisions take a very long time to get made because everyone is afraid to make a decision because we are not empowered to do so. These lags in the decision making process, along with the lack of empowerment causes great frustration in a talented and ambitious workforce.

    Pros

    Longevity at job is a plus. The technical minded will enjoy a satisfying career with the added benefit of liberal leave policy and very good health insurance.

    Cons

    There is a tendency towards being boxed in professionally unless you are careful. Excessive travel could possibly be involved normally.

    Advice to Management

    Accommodating individuals with special family needs leads to better job satisfaction as long as the mission is not affected and safety is observed.
