    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Defense Contract Management Agency full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Like working for most government entities, it is stable income and benefits. So it's great for those who care about work-life balance. -Granted "fitness hours." Two hours per week are granted off for gym or physical fitness time. All you need to do is keep a log. -As far as training opportunities are concerned, DCMA is awesome at investing in their federal interns and trainees. There is no shortage of multi-functional training opportunities.

    Cons

    -Fills the stereotype of feeding the government dinosaur. In other words, some employees only meet the expectations of working their 9 to 5 job, and nothing more. -As far as contract work is concerned, you need to be in love with contract administration (which makes up only about 10% of what there is to do in contracting) to like your job.
