Good job but the work was not satisfactory.
IT Analyst (Current Employee) – Washington City, DC – May 8, 2017
A typical day at work would consist of reading documents sent to us by agency officials and parsing through those documents for whatever information we need. We would also conduct compliance analyses to determine if the agency is keeping up with current standards and finding weaknesses in their design or implementation. I learned a lot about the governmental auditing process, different IT infrastructures, how to manage large IT networks, and how to interview high-level officials for specific information, among other things.
One thing that was fantastic was the culture and flexibility of the agency, including management. Days where you needed to work from home or maybe a little extra time to complete a task were all granted without hesitation and this made the job very stress free overall. I will admit that if it were not for the nature of the work itself, I would have stayed here for quite a long time. This flexibility and culture was, by far, the most enjoyable part of the job. As long as you like reviewing paperwork and agency policies, you would be really happy to have this job, which is why some people have been there for 35+ years and wouldn't dream of leaving for anywhere else.
High flexibility, great culture, fairly stress-free
work itself is boring, it's in DC
