"A career at NSA is whatever you decide to make it. The work-life balance is fantastic, with two separate buckets for paid time off and sick leave. You also can't take your work home with you, so when you're home, you're truly home and disconnected. NSA also supports and encourages continuing education. There are several programs to allow employees to complete degrees while working - and sometimes the programs permit you to work just part-time during your studies."

"Your career at NSA is wholly what you make it. There are great opportunities to learn new skill areas and continue your education - both inside of the agency and at external universities. Work-life balance is unmatched; there are separate buckets of sick leave and PTO, so you continually accumulate time off no matter the need."

"Hours are extremely flexible and reasonable. Any work outside of the 40 hour work week is compensated! Plus, most work is classified, so you can't/aren't expected to take it home with you."

"Most of the sexist behavior I have experienced has come from those in management (including women) and their favored employees. Promotions are scarce and are based on favoritism. Harassing women, spreading gossiping, or taking credit for the work of others is subtly rewarded. Managers rule through passive aggression and retaliate against anyone who tries to change the culture or stand up for themselves. "
