    I worked at Defense Contract Management Agency full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many times the difference in the enjoyment of a job is more about the people than the tasks. That is the case here. I had the pleasure of working with and interacting with Contracting personnel throughout the agency, and uniformly the experiences were excellent. The Contracting personnel were professional, well educated, knowledgeable of the rules and regulations that they are required to work within, and there are many, and genuinely interested in achieving the best possible outcome. Concerning the projects; this is the Department of Defense, the projects and the dollar amounts don't get any bigger!

    Cons

    Technology support and tools. Some tools are deployed without full capabilities, which can be frustrating. Also a primary tool for DCMA is MOCAS, which has been in use by DCMA and DFAS for nearly 50 years. It is the system that will not die, nor is likely to ever be replaced.

    I worked at Defense Contract Management Agency full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The hours and holidays off

    Cons

    Not challenged enough the job description was nothing like the assigned duties. They want you to have a masters to be a glorified admin ordering supplies and sending emails. No one really knows how to explain the work only how to get it done and not always the right way
