  3. "Excellent place to start one's intel career"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Office of Naval Intelligence full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to be fully responsible for an assigned portfolio with a tangible impact much earlier than in many other IC agencies. Mostly good work-life balance. Opportunity also for civilians to gain and use niche expertise unlikely to be duplicated elsewhere in IC. Great sense of mission in some areas.

    Cons

    Less known and appreciated in the Intelligence Community than it should be, so the experience is sometimes seen as less prestigious. Can be disconnected from many broader IC opportunities. Promotion potential limited once mid career because the ratio of higher rank (GG-15, DISL/DISES and SES) positions is much lower than in some sister agencies, which creates bottlenecks for talent and retention problems in some areas.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Office of Naval Intelligence full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Only agency to focus directly on Maritime Threats. If you are looking for an easy federal intelligence job, you found it. Nobody gets fired. If you just want to clock in/clock out, ONI is for you. PTO is nice if you are prior military.

    Cons

    Located in highest crime section of D.C, on a federal facility with no access to food trucks/multiple food options. No room for growth, workforce mostly consists of retired Navy that are just double dipping from their retirement. This equals zero drive and innovation from workforce. Managers are retired Navy analysts, and have marginal leadership skills. If you are eager and young, this place is the complete opposite. You are hourly paid vice salary. People sit in positions for decades, requires someone to leave or die in order to advance.

    Extremely challenging work, fantastic work/life balance. The people working there are among some of the most patriotic in the entire country. Very smart coworkers, amazing leadership.

    Physical location of the compound is in Suitland, MD which isn't exactly the nicest place in the DC area.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Office of Naval Intelligence full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work-life balance Strong Division Leadership Potential to make a difference

    Cons

    Many employees overall lack quality. Some of the older employees who have been here a long time are outstanding and believe in the mission, but many younger hires had ONI as their "safety" federal job application and are mediocre. This is a gross generalization, but it is how I feel.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Office of Naval Intelligence for more than a year

    Pros

    The missions are important and impact worldwide customers. There are plenty of opportunities for junior and senior enlisted military members to take advantage of. Additionally, the new Commander is a very down-to-earth, hands on leader.Also, the Suitland metro station is just up the road and makes local, daily trips to DC convenient.

    Cons

    Some military leaders there are only that by rank and not by character. The neighborhood around the complex isn't the safest. But security on the complex is great.

    I worked at Office of Naval Intelligence for more than a year

    Pros

    The branch of ONI I worked for is called Hopper Information Service Center located in San Diego. It is a small military command. It is a fantastic way to start a military career. The leadership takes care of their personnel. It is a strong way to learn about network topology and developing trouble shooting isolation techniques.

    Cons

    The SCIF is manned twenty-four hours a day. This is not always a negative because day and night watch personnel rotate duties, and night watch is a great way to forward personal and professional development.
