Records Examiner/Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 31, 2017
Good place to start but leave quickly. Not much room to grow given the contract environment. Benefits aren't that great. Management is mostly hands off which is good because you definitely want as little contact with them as possible. All in all, it's good working here, just not for too long.
Records Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington City, DC – March 23, 2017
The work load is heavy but pretty simple. The benefits are okay if you don't have kids or medical problems. The management can be a lot better. Managers should be required to do training once a year on management skills. There is no room to grow or move up. Overall the company is good for a college student not a mom/dad!
the managers need more training, benefits could be better
Records Examiner/Analyst (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – February 15, 2017
A job is a job, we all know that. The people that you work around, now that is what makes a job good or bad. In my case, my job is great. I enjoy coming to work every day. I've learned a lot at my current job, things that I will definitely take with me to my next job in the future.
Typical government job-No work just fill an open position so they would not lose it.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – January 11, 2017
From day one there was no leadership. Woman that was my direct supervisor was unresponsive to helping me. She was rude and condescending. The attorneys I did work for loved my work but, not enough to sustain me. This was the worse job of my fifty+ years of employment. Very high stress job. The most discriminatory place I have ever worked.
Data Analyst (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – November 14, 2016
Working for FSA at the DEA HQ's has given me a direct connection with the federal government.(my ultimate goal is to work full time as a government employee rather than only a contractor). I work in a pleasant work environment, where it is easy to communicate with my Supervisor and coworkers.
Quality Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – June 12, 2016
I have been employed with FSA for over 9 yrs. My work location is a very fast past environment. The staff is very good to work with and management is hard working and mission oriented. The job is not hard as long as you have great time management skills and you pay extra special attention to detail that is a must. There is very little room for error. I enjoy working with the staff and all the various other entities that together we produce an excellent product.
My office is small about 15 staffers
Due to the size of my workplace there is no room for in house advancement potential
Data Analyst (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – April 1, 2016
Great! I have learned so much! I have an excellent supervisor, and I work among an excellent team! The scheduling is flexible and there are so many different avenues of learning to choose from. If you want to start a career in Law Enforcement, it is a great start!
executive assistant (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – January 14, 2016
In all the interviews I have been on for FSA which have totaled about 7 over all, the procedure is the same. Its a tough process that lasts over an hour with a member of Law enforcement and a supervisor. The Interviewers seem nervous and hint that they have been exposed to a fair amount of turn over. I was finally chosen as a blind hire at the US Marshals and I know someone who interviewed for the same location as a paralegal. She mentioned that she would turn down the offer from a bad vibe she had if they extended it. Strange levels of uncertainty and complex confusing attributes of the position started to emerge.....as well as an abrasive team from another company that does back ground checks. The paralegal offer and this offer were rescinded that same day with no explanation and little communication with the US Marshals. I know that there has been a serious scandal at the Marshals recently but the feeling I got is that this position might still offer compromising business practices that as a contractor on the lower tiers exposes safety. This is just my experience, hopefully not standard with in the company.
If its stable it seems functional depending on the site
Financial Analyst I (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – November 11, 2015
Most of the employees at FSA are contractors for government agencies, but the ones with whom I work are decent people. The working conditions are pretty good, but there's no parking provided by FSA or the client.
Data Analyst (Current Employee) – New York – July 15, 2015
A large part of this position deals with editing, proofreading and picking up on any errors that may have passed through. The offices are active and you must find a balance with dealing with new cases as well as following up on old cases. Daily communication with co-workers is necessary is obtaining requested information.
