Hard work, good people and very exciting place to work.
Resident Agent in Charge (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 10, 2014
The U.S. Secret Service is a very challenging and rewarding agency to work for. The hours are long and the brotherly bond of law enforcement officers is strong. Through your career you will travel the world and witness history as it is being made. The investigative work is detailed and can be very complex. I look at the Service as the best law enforcement agency in the world and I have completely enjoyed my career.
Pros
You will always be stimulated as what you do changes on daily basis.
Cons
Long hours and extensive travel, but that is what makes it exciting.

Hard and rewarding job
Technician - Counter Sniper Team (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 2, 2014
-Each day is challenging.
-Can not find a better group of people to work with, Team concept is alive and well.
-The hardest part of the job is missing important times at home. Heavy travel and long work hours are the norm, so planning for personal time away can be difficult at times.
-Most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with and meet. Being able to travel the world protecting the most important person on the planet in places you have only read or heard about.
