Budget Analyst (Former Employee) –  Washington, DC 20301November 18, 2017
All levels of management were very supportive and helpful.I appreciated the work environment and especially how our team meetings would take place out of the office and in the food court. This provided a relaxing place to open up and talk naturally with managers, supervisors and coworkers.

The Pentagon is a city within a city. A very different experience from any other assignment. However, it was one of my most rewarding assignments. A great experience for my final assignment in the Army.

Required to put something
Technical Program Management Analyst (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 7, 2017
This was a required block. The location was a privilege to be allowed to work in and for, but reviewing this location is absolutely the most annoying thing a web based career search website has asked me to do to continue my search for a location not in the busiest city in the western hemisphere. If you want a challenge and can pass the screening requirements, you would be lucky to hold a position here. I'm just not a big city type anymore.

Worked irregular hours, and the work is monotonous and tedious as lower level jobs in the Pentagon tend to be.

Everything is on a short timeline regardless of how insignificant it appears to be.
Pros
Great situational awareness of everything going on
Cons
I cannot remember ever thinking how little my opinion/contributions ever mattered than I did here
