As a video analyst for BAE I, of course, analyzed videos for a government agency. The hours are rotating shift, 12 hours per night/day of staring at video screens with a few breaks in the monotony. It is great as an entry level job, but it has a high level of requirement as far as security clearance and military training. The hardest part of the job is the high learning curve for people with skill sets outside of the video analysis industry, and the efforts to maintain and improve those skills. There isn't a whole lot of advancement potential, with only a few pay bumps over the years. Though the schedule is very accommodating, actual vacation is not as easy to use due to the offset on days work (8 vs 12 hr days). There are also a lot of opportunities for voluntary overtime. I know this is kind of rambling, but I don't really have anything negative to say, only positive and neutral statements.
competitive pay, good schedule, lots of training
long days, hard on the eyes, high learning curve
