Work Culture is Poor
Geospatial Analyst, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (Current Employee) –  HawaiiJanuary 24, 2019
Supervisors don't know how to manage, thus, the workers are left to compete against each other for work and performance ratings. HR plays too large of a role in managing how long someone remains in their position, and they do this very inconsistently (taking into account people with special considerations, leaving it very much to an unequal playing field).
Pros
Stable job, great federal benefits, flexible schedule
Cons
Career Services manages everyone's time in positions (case by case basis)

Federal Govt Employment
HR (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOFebruary 8, 2019
Good for a steady job and with government benefits. Very depressing environment though with no windows, strong security rules. Part of being in an intelligence agency environment which is good for some, not for others.

NGA review
IT and GEOINT Capability Program Manager (Former Employee) –  VirginiaOctober 4, 2018
Overall, NGA enhanced my career by allowing exposure to all phases of implementing new IT applications in the intelligence arena. Management was a weak area for NGA since there was an overall impression that mgmt folks were not fair in giving career advancement opportunities to certain folks.

Imagery Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee) –  Honolulu County, HIOctober 9, 2018
I wish I could have figured out how to work there longer. Just make that you are putting God and your family first and you should be successful at this work location. I think those kind of employees last the longest.
Pros
lots of professional training provided for free.
Cons
not a lot of time to build proficiencies within one discipline, they rotate you a lot.

I am only here temporarily with the military so a lot of the questions asked about NGA don't really apply to the benefits of the military. Civilians have a different benefits systems.
