Job on site was good, management at the rear was bad.
Signals Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee) – Logar, Afghanistan – January 24, 2017
Job on site was really good. Worked along with intelligent and professional Military and SF groups/members. Schedule was set in stone. Had plenty of opportunities to learn new analyst techniques, programs and databases. Had a decent cafeteria and gym. Work environment was relaxed, yet work oriented and friendly.
Management at the rear was pretty bad. They were disconnected with reality of outcomes from their subordinates. Made false or vague comments that threatened job security and job reviews. Was always just a numbers game (how many products, how many reports, how many this or that). Certain requirements for weekly reports were too demanding (unable to provide certain information that was classified, unable to provide weekly report due to loss of internet at job-site, etc). Time between inquiry and receiving an answer took an unjustifiably long time. Lack of understanding for loss of communication due to FOB's loss of internet.
Good working environment, saw fruits of labor, many opportunities to learn, good food, good gym.
