Support from management

Weak on the ground, worse at Corporate

Teamwork

Easy to get "thrown under the bus."

Career Development

Excellent

Work-Life Balance

12x6, paid day off

Inclusive / Diverse

Rampant obvious favoritism

What I like about the company

Paid day off, completion bonus.

What I dislike about the company

Highly aggressive, antagonistic. Rules are enforced unevenly. Favorite employees get by with mediocre work, others chastised for minor infractions. Most employees are treated like Marine Corp privates. Corporate is out of touch with those performing the mission. Managers on the ground are focused on appeasing Corporate and reactive, not proactive.

Support from management

Senior leadership in DC is strong. Leadership at the embassy is poor on it's best day. They lack the training to be leaders.

Teamwork

There is a great deal of teamwork and looking out for the welfare of others due to the environment of Baghdad.

Internal Communication

Communications between Baghdad and DC is difficult due to the time zones.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation is part of the contract with the Dept of State and they constantly want the best for the cheapest. SOC tries but most often it's out of their hands.

Office / Work Environment

SOC isn't in control of the working conditions in Baghdad. They try to make us comfortable but can only do so much in a third world country. They try very hard.

Work-Life Balance

Hard to have work-live balance when your 6,000 miles away from family. They do try though.

Workplace Safety

Hard to have safety when everyone is carrying a weapon and so are the bad guys. SOC works very hard to keep employees safe but not always possible.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Develop and grow leaders and take advantage of the many employees who have previously been in demanding leadership positions. Don't make them clerks with little or no challenges to keep them motivated. Continuing the way the past practice has been will only result in a continuing high turnover of qualified people thereby costing SOC big $'s.

What I like about the company

They treated people with respect but with impartial firmness. When it comes to the safety and security of a US Embassy there must be firm rules.

What I dislike about the company

Very poor leadership on site with people who had little or no experience leading people. Good leaders are relegated to minor positions with little or no thought to their background or past experiences.
