Great
Great place to start your career. The government gives young people lots of responsibility early. Your first couple of promotions should come pretty quickly. After a time (5-10 years) you may feel stuck or burned out. Then go to the private sector. Do NOT become a dragging, burned-out lifer.

Government
The Federal Government is what it is. It's hard and complex with stress beyond description. It's challenging and offers few rewards. But, anyone that can accept all those negatives will find it self satisfying beyond self gratification. It is what it is.

independent contributor
setting appointments and following through with meetings and inspections in the field. Hardest part of the job is managing the monotony while the easiest is the job function itself.

Review follows
Some areas were high tech and exciting, some were stressful, and some had too much paperwork. Mentoring was more than adequate and schools to upgrade your skill set were always available. There was also adequate time and equipment to improve your job insight. I enjoyed the techie stuff. The hardest part of the job was when military/political enemies made uncalculated moves. Culture was supportive. Management was supportive. I learned much about DoD, IC. Mil, etc.
Pros
great software, important "target" material
Cons
odd and rotating shifts for "what i did".

Good working environment and nice facilities.
Feast or famine, call center environment. procedural, repetitive troubleshooting. Methodical about determining where the break down in communication line exists. learned how to work telecommunication networks and satellite. Agency determined to education for upward mobility. Hardest part of the job was the 12 hr and 24/7 work schedules/shift work.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the camaraderie we had.
Pros
great opportunity for promotion
