Great colleagues with vast experience
Political-Military Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 2, 2015
I worked in a 24/7 watch or crisis action team (the Political Military Action Team or PMAT). We issued a twice-daily (M-F) situation report (SitRep) on world events (from classified sources), cleared diplomatic flights into the U.S, or through U.S. airspace, and answered requests for information from within Department of State.
The persons who I worked alongside were retired DoS foreign service officers and former senior military. They had unique experiences and great insight into historical events, many of which they had witnessed first hand. I learned a higher-level perspective from them.
The greatest difficulty on a daily basis was the many and varied problems with the IT infrastructure.
The most enjoyable part was interacting with my colleagues.
