Show a positive attitude and a calm, clear demeanor."

What don't you like about working at U.S. Department of Defense?

"It's boring. The performance is very low. Management is resistant to change. People who try to do things differently are punished by resistance and complaining. I have no opportunity for growth in my current position but make too much money to easily transition to another career field at my salary grade."
