Other ways to make money

While it's a stable government job, the environment in some intstitutions is beyond toxic. Lots of managers fail upwards. Incompetence at every level. Lazy and refuse to do work? No problem managment will find someone else to do it for you and there will be zero consequences. TONS of political games and corruption. Some of the stories are hardly to be believed. Pros: usually lots of overtime. Good benefits and lots of schedule options.

Stressful, boring, nerve wracking, terror filled, funny at times, sad at times, camaraderie, back stabbing, negative and poisonous atmosphere and I shouldn't endorse it but the money is decent

Working for CSC is not for everyone. It can be a tough, but rewarding career.

Working for CSC has pluses and minuses like any job. Job security is high, but job satisfaction is often low. It can be frustrating to work for the federal government as priorities change as governments change. Too much management and oversight and you need to be able to work within fairly strict guidelines.


Job security


Little room to be an individual.
