Suggestions for improvement

  • Take the entire Security Organization out in a field and.... well, I am not supposed to say mean things in these reviews so I will stop right there

What I like about the company

Most things. Managers have little power, so they try to persuade you rather than threaten you. The work is interesting, the pay is okay, the benefits are tremendous (pension and lots of vacation), and you CANNOT take your work home with you. Your coworkers can be a little geeky, but they are generally nice and are not trying to undercut you.

Company culture

NSA is vast. My comments only apply to the analytic section.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be realistic. Trim the fat. Cut your workforce in half, and keep the better half.

What I like about the company

Great experience, job security, low pressure. I was fortunate to have good managers in every position I held there, who worked for my success and advancement. If you are gifted and work hard you can advance there.

What I dislike about the company

Like all other federal agencies, it's bureaucratic. Too much focus on EEO, diversity, and sensitivity and not enough on efficiency/productivity. It gets extremely boring sometimes and disappointing the number of people and even entire organizations who do little-to-nothing, while pretending to be productive and even advancing, because of EEO and just because it's .gov.
