US Goverment
Written by Computer Specialist (Former Employee) from Bethesda MD (end location) on January 12, 2014
Its the US Government. Typical day at work: watch your back/ What I learned: watch your back/ Management and co-workers:too busy watching their backs/ Hardest part of the job: doing my job and watching my back/ Most enjoyable part of the job: When I decided to end my career as a federal employee and become a federal contractor.
