Poor management/limited advancement for non-Agents
While working for the government offers job security not often found in the private sector, opportunities for advancement are limited for non-agent staff. The professional staff, as it's called, is not always treated as professionals by the agent population.

The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people throughout the FBI field offices. The hardest part of the job is the lack of accountability that I have witnessed, the multiple system implementations that actually increase inefficiency and complexity, and the cronyism that runs rampant.
