    Pros

    I have worked in the Columbia office full time for over a year. The people here are delightful, smart and committed. You could not find a better organization!

    Cons

    The corporate office in Pasadena, California has no idea about the Intelligence Community and tries to control a group they know nothing about. I can't say anything good about them!

    Advice to Management

    Let the divisions have more autonomy!

    Pros

    Great co-workers and team leads. Best boss I have ever had.

    Corporate policies continually make our requirements for travel harder and are in the best interest of the company, not the employee.
