It is great working at the Pentagon. As an intern there are a lot of great opportunities to learn and meet a lot of people. Unlike other internships I have done at this internship I am able to get hands on experience that will help me in future jobs.

Challenging environment
Aide (Former Employee), Washington, DCMarch 16, 2015
A daunting organization to be apart of - slow moving bureaucracy can make small challenges seem bigger. A plethora of resources in the building to maintain a high quality of life - gym, food court, pharmacy, etc.

SENIOR TV PRODUCER & CHIEF OF MEDIA TRAINING (Former Employee), Pentagon Washington DCFebruary 12, 2015
A great place to see and participate in history. I learned much about the craft of communications and about mentoring and managing people. The hardest parts of the job were also the most enjoyable--working with people to create subjective methods of objective reality.

Office of Budget and Reports (Former Employee), Washington, DCAugust 25, 2014
After a 20 year career in the US Navy, I was well prepared as I started my second career as a federal government employee. The Navy taught me the work ethic and dependability qualities employers are searching for. My managment and workers were just as dedicated and hardworking as I was. The hardest part about being in the Navy was leaving family behind and the best part was returning home.
