The National Security Agency is on a Hiring Binge

Originally published at: The National Security Agency is on a Hiring Binge | ClearanceJobs Blog

The National Security Agency (NSA) is in the middle of hiring 3,000 new employees, the largest growth in the NSA’s history. Why? Because of a combination of factors. First, their workforce is aging and many of their employees are looking at retiring in the next one to five years. Second, they have lost many employees…

Is NSA as bad as I’ve heard? No flex schedule, no phones, stuck in SCIFs all day every day, etc…?

I have several applications with them and they are all in in review. Some of them are in review for 4-5 months. Not sure if they are slow since it sounds like they are in need of people. Anyone else like me?

True about no cell phone at work and being in a SCIF but that is true of any cleared job.

However I’m pretty sure NSA does have very flexible schedules, more than some other agencies. Not sure if that also goes for contractors.
