Human Resources Specialist III /Contractor /NST (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – March 21, 2019
A busy and fun filled place to work. Because most of the work was a process there was very little stress. Management there was always helpful to make sure you had the resources to be effective doing the day to day tasks. I learned my best writing skills during my time there. At times it could be frustrating because the process to complete a task could take weeks.
F-16 Integrated Avionics Technician (Former Employee) – Global – March 19, 2019
I was an Integrated Avionics Technician for the F-16 fighter Aircraft, and I would work more than 12 hours or more a day on average. Although, the benefits and pay was amazing it was a demanding job in my experience, and provided little to no personal time. It was still worth it as opposed to not working at all.

Junior Support Analyst Contractor (Current Employee) – Lorton, VA – March 19, 2019
I'm not a direct employee of the DOD or DLA, I'm only a contractor. Overall as a contractor I haven't had much luck with advancing in my position. There is room for growth but the leads and supervisors decide if they want you to grow. The Culture of the office is cold and uninviting, there is constant talk about inappropriate discussions on politics that can become uncomfortable if you don't like to share your views (whatever they maybe). I've have the pleasure of meeting new people and have gotten the opportunity to observe the culture of a different organization that what I'm used to. All my time spent at the job regardless of having a ton of work or not have only been an opportunity to learn.
You can telework.
depending on who you work with things can get very very slow.
Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Quantico, VA – March 18, 2019
Great place to work, enjoyable atmosphere. The building is like a college campus there is a gym located at the Head Quarters and a dining facility where you can get breakfast and lunch everyday. Most of the agency work with flexible work schedules for commuters.
Diesel Mechanic (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – March 17, 2019
It is a everyday job that takes military manners and civilian lifestyle to work and complete to hit our goals every year. We had guides for all who are not to skilled in some spots and people who would teach all things that were not up to the task but made it work as a team. We as one would help one of each other out to get out mission complete as the each day went on and we held our standers to the highest when it came to working on big motor vehicles to make sure they did not fail who ever use them.

Supervisory Contract Specialist (Current Employee) – New Hampshire – March 16, 2019
Truly it depends where you end up. The DoD has great benefits and opportunities for you to get out of your career what you want. Like anywhere you get out what you put in. Work hard be smart follow the chain-of-command and be innovative. Critique your bosses behind closed doors and praise the mission in public and you will be just fine for a long rewarding career. People are people and you get what you get. Today the DoD is undergoing a culture shift that is freeing to the worker. More telework is being allowed tobresponsible people everyday. Their hiring process is a mess but always has been because of archaic HR rules that are made to benefit no one so that no one is singled out. To say things are bad would be incorrect they are just the last to make great changes due to their command and control nature and inflexibility. It is changing however and getting better quickly now.
Secure, benefits, pay is steady, student loans forgiveness programs and tuition reimbursement, you decide how hard you work.
Old culture still evolving, lower than industry pay
Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Fort Meade, MD – March 14, 2019
I enjoyed working for Defense Information Systems Agency’s because they made sure you got the training that was need to perform your job and you also had the tools to perform your duties. DISA gives opportunity for their employees to grow and cross training into other areas of the Agency. I was very pleased with my job and the Agency.
Productive fast paced customer service environment.
