After 30 years of employment, it’s given me so many levels of experience. I find it easier to gain employment.
It was really a pleasure to work for DoD. However, it’s management that abuse their authority. Not all managers are bad. But, if you get a bad manager it’s best to leave because you won’t get promoted but you will get harrassed. After 2 years It’s best to move on to a job you feel you are a good fit. Working for DoD, you have many options, benefits and you can work any where in the world

A most interesting and rewarding place to work.
Because I was permitted to work in various field assignments abroad for most of my career, I found the nature of the work, overall conditions of the various jobs, and the compensations most rewarding. I was less satisfied with assignments of a largely administrative nature, though I understood the importance of such aspects as essential to the different missions.

Aside from the interesting content of my work, I found interaction with and mutual support from my excellent colleagues over the years particularly enjoyable and memorable.
Pros
Challenging and varied nature of the work
Cons
a daily flood of mainly superfluous internal email traffic
