What is the best part of working at the company?The work you do is almost always life changing for someone, including yourself. You get exposed to a lot of reality and it gives you great perspective. You get to learn things from a world of subject matter experts in any field. Every day is a new adventure. Nothing is mundane.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Managing office politics can be a challenge at times. It is all good... up until the moment that it is not. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Culture depends on the people at the office where you work and who is in charge at that office. Generally, the people are awesome and well meaning people with a lot of unique life experiences. You can make great and lasting friendships and the work environment is flexible with your own work ethic. If you are a hard charger, you will rise to where you want to be. If you prefer the easy 8-5, you can find that too, by working your way into bank fraud cases or some such. If you like travel and international intrigue, there is that too. Opportunities are endless.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Adventurous and unpredictable. It is rare to have a day end up how I perceived it would be when I woke up in the morning. It's great if you like adventure and ambiguity. If you like predictability and stagnation, this is not the place to be.
