lots of traveling strong employee bonding relaxed but labor intensive
carpenter, lead man (Current Employee) – Pekin, IL – November 18, 2016
Great place to develop new skills and learn about post frame buildings. Other employees are great to work with. The company cares about their employee's safety and well being. The hardest part of the job is the climbing and long work hours can take a toll on your body. The most enjoyable part of the job is going to work with some of my best friends and seeing a customers reaction to his new building.
great benefits, great group of people, job security
labor intensive, lots of traveling and time away from home and family

Special Investigator and other contract positions (Current Employee) – Alabama – October 20, 2016
My present and most recent jobs have been enjoyable and challenging. Working in a war zone has been sobering. To experience other cultures and work with foreign nationals was a satisfying and rewarding experience. Management was open to suggestion in some positions, and some had antiquated management styles and were not good team workers.
Wonderful and rewarding career experience with lifelong associates.
Special Agent (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 18, 2016
My career with the FBI was both interesting and rewarding. It always resulted in a feeling of satisfaction and the prestige associated with the job was well earned and respected. I learned a great deal about people and always was certain that I was doing a job that had to be done, that few were called to do and that many benefited from what was accomplished. My co workers as well as management personnel were dedicated individuals many of whom I have formed a lifelong association. Together with my service in the marine Corps, I feel that I have achieved the best of both worlds.
Management & Program Analyst (Former Employee) – Clarksburg, WV – February 22, 2016
This was just not a job this was a career that I stepped away from to care for my two small children. I loved virtually everything about my job the analytical side and the financial side. Management in the government is always changing and people are always moving, it was best to be able to adapt change quite well, which I did. My co-workers were the best part of the job, as I spent more time with them at times then my own family. Even though I am not physically staffed at the Bureau currently I still remain close with all of my old co-workers.
Special Agent/Recruiter (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – July 15, 2016
My thoughts on what the FBI was were proven to be incorrect. Management protects management and not first line agents. There is a ton of corruption and "good old boy networks". Employees of the FBI will often say the FBI eats it's own. It was a huge disappointment.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 18, 2016
I was proud to work for MGAC under their contract with the FBI. The caliber of people there is incredible.
My typical workday was from about 6:30 am until 3:30 or 4:00. My days were spent either in the office following up on project management issues with several ongoing jobs and lease reviews or on site at the jobs I was responsible for. Travel weekly wasn't unusual. It was a good position (as a Portfolio Manager and Project Manager)that complimented my work/life balance. Rarely did I work weekends.
MGAC's Management is very interested in the development of the individuals under their purview. I felt strongly they cared and were their to offer their assistance (along with tuition reimbursement) and mentorship.
The hardest part of my job was juggling the lease administration portion of the position with the constant work required in the project management position. I worked remotely so communication with the main office was sometimes problematic.
The most enjoyable part of working with MGAC was the interface with the client. I really enjoyed the opportunity to build relationships with our clients working directly with them on various projects and leasing issues.
Assistant Special Agent in Charge - Cyber Branch (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – December 7, 2016
An honorable calling. No typical day or experience. The ability to reinvent yourself nearly every three or four years. Work alongside a workforce unmatched in any other profession as it relates to honesty and integrity.
Firearms/Toolmarks Technician (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 14, 2017
Responsible for receiving and examining all incoming evidence related to firearms, firearms components, ammunition, and toolmarks. One of many subdivisions of the FBI Laboratory devoted to a specific discipline of forensic science.
Great agency, with generous compensation, benefits and friendly work environments.
Paralegal Specialist (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 13, 2016
In my various roles at the FBI, I would handled time and attendance records, payroll and other related issues and prepare and schedule and send out tax receipt checks to state and local tax entities. I learned how to interact in a fast-paced working environment while managing a high volume of work. Management was very professional, friendly and interested in making sure I had the skills and learning necessary to advance within the agency. My co-workers were quite nice to work with, made it enjoyable to go to work every day and were very willing to assist on any questions or issues I encountered. The hardest part of the job was actually not the job itself, but the three hour round trip commute. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with pleasant co-workers and management that made it conducive to a very productive work environment.
Great compensation, including annual cost of living adjustments and benefits.
Facilities/Project/Security Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 13, 2016
I worked for the FBI for over 36 years and cannot think of one single day that I didn't feel like going to work. Great opportunity and able to travel to places within the US that I would have NEVER gone to. Also as a Project Manger, I was highly respected for my knowledge and ability to work very well with many stakeholders involved in my assigned projects and was often called upon to take over projects to get them back on track/schedule.
Supervisory Special Agent (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 7, 2017
Great place to work with a mission that cannot be matched. A sense of fulfillment is present everyday. Like any large organization, it does have a level of bureaucracy that you need to learn to navigate.
Management & Program Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 2, 2016
A typical day consisted of various duties and challenges. The most enjoyable and rewarding part of the job was meeting and educating people. As an instructor, I learned many things from research and the students. As an office administrator, I worked in an ever-changing, fast-paced environment that required the ability to multi-task and to think outside the box to solve issues as they occurred.
