I have been working at US Department of Defense full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Stable pay and good benefits.

Cons

Working as a civilian for the military is rough. The military leaders do not know the requirements of civilian employees and often try to treat civilians like military members demanding things like relocation, crappy hours, working terrible shifts. They will push and push until you push back and then when you finally do what is right you are viewed as trouble

Advice to Management

Learn the rules of civilian employment

    I worked at US Department of Defense full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good job security
    - Good benefits
    - Excellent travel ops

    Cons

    - Working with government employees was one of the most eye opening and discouraging experience I have ever had. Coming from the private sector, I could only make it about 6 months before I had to leave. It takes a certain kind of person that enjoys that sort of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Serious house cleaning is needed.

    More training is needed for military personnel in the education of civilian employees in the military work environment.
