Supervisor
in Laguna Niguel, CA

"I worked for USCIS in the Department of Homeland Security in Laguna Niguel for approximately 11 years. USCIS reviews visa petitions and applications and makes determinations as to eligibility. It was an excellent place to work. Prior to that position I worked for Liberty Mutual Insurance Company as in house counsel defending the company's insured in civil litigation and workers' compensation matters. It also was a very good employer."

Transportation Security Officer
in Philadelphia, PA

"I have worked with TSA since 2009. As an employee, you have lots of opportunities to better yourself professionally and personally. There are numerous shifts available for all schedules. If I had one complaint that it would be the pay. As a government employee, TSO are at the lowest end of the pay scale and remains so for a long time."

US Department of Homeland Security Employee
in Lees Summit, MO

"There is plenty of room to grow if you stay for years and are willing to wait for people to retire. They are incredibly behind on technology standards and are incredibly strict on how you get auxiliary programming utilities on the internet such as compilers and libraries. My supervisor wasn't technologically savvy and I felt that most of my time was spent writing reports and trying to explain projects to people who didn't understand simple projects instead of getting projects done."
