Suggestions for improvement

  • I feel that people who work in my office should be held responsible for not working up to par and everyone else has to pull that person's weight. In the private sector people are fired for not doing there jobs but in the government it is very difficult to let anyone go for poor work performance

What I like about the company

I work with many wonderful people and feel that my job keeps America safe. My job has so many positives that I wouldnt be able to name them all but one of the most important one is that I have a boss who appreciates my work and cares about me not only as an employee but as a person.

What I dislike about the company

The inability to move up until someone retires and the problem with politicians using government jobs hostage to prove a point or to get what they want. It is very stressful when government shutdowns happen

Suggestions for improvement

  • To put aside political differences and work collectively despite the differences people may have in terms of culture or political views.

What I like about the company

Everyone works together as a team. What makes the job hard is that majority of the work requires team work. Everyone needs to make a contribution when it comes to working. It does pay off once that pay check comes in.

What I dislike about the company

People can be too political when it comes to work. It shows immaturity and breaks the company's policies when political views are expressed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see Management tackle problems and legal issues faster. Oftentime, it feels as if we are doing it all alone. Perhaps more discussions would be beneficial to all. Sharing and learning with real cases to apply instead of hypotheticals on a screen. If the promotions are few and far between, then Management should find other perks. I don't believe Management tries enough in this department.

What I like about the company

Established in 2003, DHS has 26 agencies. It is an enormous organization thst has a lot of responsibilities. I am proud to do my part here for federal law enforcement.

What I dislike about the company

Promotion possibility is slim in a big city, but the pay is pretty decent, and with Govt. employment, you become more marketable with an advanced degree. You have to work pretty fast, think on your feet, and be able to do this day in and day out.
