      The Don’t Comprehend Management Agency (DCMA)

      Sep 18, 2021 - Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great Federal Government Benefits (10+ Holidays, Work Schedule, Fitness/Annual/Medical Leave, Medical/Life/ Dental Insurance, 401K). Opportunity to Work Overseas.

      Cons

      No clear guidance from management. Looks like instructions are put together to check out a block; when asking for clarification, can’t find straight answer from POCS. Hiring practices, the worst I have seen in the DOD. Small agency that hires employees not based on knowledge/experience but on friendship. Mission is driven based on personal agendas at the CMO level (i.e. next promotion). Hard workers are constantly getting overlooked. Finally, get ready to spend 50% of your time monitoring yourself and generating useless reports to justify your existence with the agency.
