Transportation Security Officer (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 23, 2016
It is usually busy everyday because alot of people fly from LAX airport. I've learned alot of responsibility because my job it to protect the passengers from any type of threats on a daily basis.My co-workers are great, we always help each other out when ever we need help.The hardest part of the job is dealing with ignorant people.

TSA is actually very simple to master within a couple months. With time the job becomes second nature. However, rules are constantly changing, leaving passengers flustered, which makes it hard to explain why certain procedures are in place. Overall, a good place to work.

working there was alright. leadership is a mess though. they need to work on how they treat their employees. they ask for a lot but don't help the employees when they need it. wish they had our backs and took work history into consideration before laying down any kind of workplace discipline.
Acting Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – September 9, 2016
A typical work day is normally fast paced with multiple moving targets. Tuesdays through Thursdays are full of meetings and impromptus. The work is great and I enjoy working with other departments. The most difficult aspect of the job is the lack of information relative to strategic planning which can make decision making tenuous at times.
Consultant/Contractor (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – August 22, 2016
I worked on a contract change management project that was going through the acceptance phase at the same time it was going through the communications planning phase.
Employees demonstrated great knowledge about their work; understood their purpose and the need for good customer and stakeholder communications. Give the size of this agency, it was refreshing to meet so many very dedicated employees.
Very active work place. Very focus and driven. I always had to pay attention to my surroundings. Always was on guard. People always willing to help you when you had any concerns or questions at the work place.
