Productive and challenging job but also balanced life
IT Intern/Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 28, 2016
DOJ's Asset Forfeiture Management Staff (AFMS) comprises of several departments including it's information security team. Forfeiture Systems's (FS) security team deals with continuous monitoring, incident response, vulnerability assessment, vulnerability remediation, working with various security tools, and analysis of vulnerable findings within AFMS networks. The essential part and the most challenging part of the job was to maintain a good security posture so management would be satisfied with overall security structure. The most enjoyable part of the team was the flexibility in work schedules and balance between professional and personal life.
Network/System Support Engineer Tier II (Current Employee) – Virginia – April 28, 2016
AIR is a place you can develop yourself and gives flexibility by not thinking outside the box but thinking like there is no box. There a lot of seasoned individual who support you in case there is a gridlock on case you are working on.
ASCM NOC (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 2, 2016
I was let go by the VP, just because I installed FileZilla Software and the installation happened under IT service desk supervision and ticketed and for some reason my laptop was infected.
I was hired as a temp for among with 5 other temps, after one year they hired 3 female as a full time and the hiring was not based on qualification other than who do you know in the department. The other 2 male temp who are still temp they know way more than others, but just because they don't have anyone and they are guys.
One of the converters has the experience but the other 2 has nothing to do with IT ( Assesment Department)
If you are a temp or a contractor you are second degree Citizen I have never felt this disrespected during my career like I felt at AIR.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 20, 2015
I worked as temporary stuff for the assessment department in this non-profit organization. Because of my temporary status, I didn't have my own office as other formal employees. Although my title for the position was research assistant, my daily duty and responsibility didn't seem to have much relationship with research or analysis. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed my job working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. I made a really good friend from this job and had a excellent and intelligent leader.
A typical day involves working 8:00am-4:30pm, training small groups of scorers on rubrics for scoring assessments. Management provides a relaxed atmosphere and lots of schedule flexibility. The compensation is also adequate. The only downside is that scoring projects aren't always happening, so there will often be weeks, even months at a time where no work is available. This job is best for people looking for supplementary income, or who are between jobs and need temporary income.
Graphic designer (Current Employee) – Washington DC – March 31, 2015
I love the location, The work environment is really good and they make nice parties and activities for the employees. They are flexible with the work hours and also you can work from home when the weather is no too good. They don't have a dress code, what is really comfortable. The people who work there is really nice The bad part is that the payments are not really good and the company have long period of times when the work is really slow.
Good work environment, flexible hours, not dress code, Good location
salary is not too good, the work can be hard and suddenly really slow.
Item Writer II (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – December 2, 2014
Management has absolutely no idea how the regular day to day work is done (and will impose arbitrary changes without consulting the tams as to how this will affect their work process. For a salaried 40 hour work week, it is not uncommon to end up working 60. Because the rate of people quitting vastly outweighs the people getting hired, job security is good. The work environment is pleasant; a shared misery attitude where everyone pulls more than their weight because they don't want to let down their coworkers
Communications and marketing (Former Employee) – Health division – March 17, 2012
Though some of the work is interesting, and the benefits aren't bad, upper management has no respect for those at lower levels--treating them as suspect resources to be chewed up without any serious prospect of advancement (unless you're the favorite of the right supervisor).
good healthcare, fairly flexible in terms of schedule
no respect, incompetence rewarded, little challenge, no internal communication, no cohesion
Awesome work/life balance, everything else is lackluster
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – April 18, 2012
Work with people interested in what their doing and are generally interesting. Great work life balance... not expected to put in crazy long hours (only on rare occasion). Lots of food leftover from meetings. Management is pretty hit or miss. Terrible corporate structure for advancement - hardly merit based. Benefits are alright, but salary is terrible.
good work life balance, frequent free food, everyone has an office
poor management, low salary, little opportunity for advancement, sometime terrible clients
