Written by Program Assistant (Current Employee) from Sterling, VA on March 5, 2013
I don't want to write any reviews. On a typical day I go to work. I have learned many things. Management is interesting. Most of my coworkers are great. the hardest part of the job is being under paid.
The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with so many different types of people.
