SENIOR SPECIAL AGENT-Top Secret SCI, Q Clearance (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 3, 2013
There were plenty of positive aspects about this job and I learned a great deal from it. The mismanagement in the unit was obvious to all inside and outside of GAO and it reflected with a high turnover rate and internal and external investigations about the unit.
