Management Program Analyst in Vienna, VA

Working for the FBI is me working not only for myself, for my children but for the country as a whole. Making sure we are protected in all ways possible.
Analyst in San Diego
on September 7, 2021
Great agency to work for, especially in San Diego. Caring employees who want to work with the community and catch the bad guys. Despite the current state of politics, we try hard to do the right thing.
Special Agent in United States
on August 29, 2021
All PC these days, highly political, very left leaning, Intel & statistics driven. Focused on CYA for upper management. Lost their way. Used to be apolitical, now it's very politically biased. Sad. Most of my senior managers were ethically compromised.
IT Specialist in Washington, DC
on August 15, 2021
Federal government is typically unable to spend money on the latest technology. While good about making training available, time constraints don’t allow employees to take advantage. The salaries are excellent in the IT field of the FBI.
Supervisory Special Agent in Newark, NJ
on August 13, 2021
The FBI is a great organization. Focusing on upholding the U.S. Constitution. You get a great sense of accomplishment when a job is completed. You work with some amazing and incredibly educated folks.
