It is a great place to work. A very family friendly environment with great pay & benefits. The things you experience are awesome. One day you could be in an airplane doing surveillance of a subject to an illegal narcotic trafficking organization and the next day you could be interviewing a high-profile elected official. It's not just a career, but a calling. You go home every day feeling like you’re making a difference.
Pros
The experiences you have
Cons
None

A typical day would be anywhere from a slow start to a rapid place work environment that has it's peaks and valleys. I learned how to work closely with both efficient and challenging co-workers, as well as, a supporting management staff. The workplace culture brings a unique energy with people who have varying levels of expertise in their field. The hardest part of the job is not seeing a particular mission through due to circumstances beyond anyone's control that can effect others negatively. In turn, the most enjoyable part of the job is being successful in completing a mission wherein others are impacted in a positive way.
Pros
Having a positive impact within the Bureau, as well as, externally with others.
Cons
I have no Cons with my current position.

This job is good if you want to travel, work long hours, and be in the center of things. However, they expect you to make this job your life. Family is not a priority, there is no work life balance. You must be willing to move every few years if you wish to advance.
Pros
Travel
Cons
No work life balance

Considering the end result as perfect, some workers did not make it perfect. Some supervisors were not experience enough at their job and the seriousness of what they had to do..

Great organization but since 45 has been in office, he has tarnished imagine of the organization. Far different in management styles than my military career. Management at different levels can't be trusted because too focus on self and not the employees. All boils down to leadership.

The work has no sense of purpose. The leadership doesn’t know what their doing better yet the direction they need to go so they can’t lead anyone. There’s always a state of confusion of the tasks how to




execute them
Pros
It was close to my house
Cons
Leadership doesn’t understand their own job

Stable, by the book, good employment. Learn management, investigation, as well as adjudication. As a manager you work with individuals with different backgrounds and mind sets. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you know you have vetted the best individuals for the job.

I was a Special Agent of the FBI for 25 years. I worked cases the whole time - never went the supervisory route. I moved around a lot (New Orleans, Montana, Idaho, New Mexico, and Colorado) and mostly worked violent crime I worked with and for a few asshats, but mostly my peers and bosses were great people. Retired now. As the saying goes: I don’t miss the circus, but I do miss the clowns
