Great place to work in a nice environment. Great place to learn a lot of new technologies and use what you already know to apply to your every day job.
Network Administrator in United States
on October 14, 2021
I went in as a young administrative assistant and came out a network administrator. The opportunities are fair enough should you really take advantage of them and communicate these to your supervisor. I was able to receive IT training and apply for an IT-related position within the department and received it. This opened the door to better opportunities including work with the NCIS and FBI. It is too bad that I had to leave, but if I could rewind back time, I would've taken a promotion that the DOE had offered me, but instead I left because I wanted to explore further career growth. Up to this day, I thank the DOE for providing me with such an excellent opportunity.

Great way to be involved in important national security work and have significant responsibility from early on in one's career. Very interesting work.

Everyone working in DOE and in and out of the facilities were professionals and are of high integrity person. My 11 years with DOE as a Security Police officer II, was some of the best times in my life.

Interesting work for a government job. Chances to be creative but there is always a lot of work to do. Salaries here tend to be lower for the level of professional talent that is here compared to other government agencies.

Was I flexible etc. Training in LA for entire US team. Could I travel in entire Palm Beach County and possibly outside the county.

Because this department is very fast-paced and the Director is always running around, I was asked if I thought I would be able to keep up with him. I told them I had no doubt I would be able to keep up and was offered the position.
