-The current vast majority of management is worthless along many newly promoted young managers, so the trend will continue for the foreseeable future. Management has no strategic vision or planning, very little demonstrated leadership, very little professional leadership, ridiculous risk aversion, and like many U.S. government officials, most seem to simply fill the slots and make the minimum amount needed to get their next promotion or retire for great performance. It`s absolutely frustrating. All that said, for the few senior executives who do not fall into this category, keep the good fight – you are much appreciated by your subordinates and are a glimmer of hope for this agency. -Workers must sign a mobility agreement, which means that, like the active army, you are strongly discouraged from staying at the same duty station for more than 4 to 5 years. However, civilian officers do not have any of the benefits enjoyed by the military unless they live abroad (for example. B payment in tax exemption for housing and subsistence, the privileges of the police station/PX, etc.). Thus, the expectation of being separated from one`s own family is also integrated into the culture of this agency – much more than “normal” or “typical” repressive jobs.
This is the cultural norm that the more you move, the more it is seen by management, regardless of the actual knowledge, skills and skills of the officer. In addition, officers are expected to work as they have a lot of time away from home, and the officer`s family simply has to take care of it (again, much like the active army without the benefits). It`s really a weird corporate culture. Flexibility is the key to the FBI. They must be ready and willing to be assigned to the needs of the Office. All agents must sign and comply with a mobility agreement stipulating that as a special representative, you accept the possibility of transfer as a condition of your employment. However, after diversions to a State Department, new special agents are generally not transferred unless they request a voluntary transfer, apply for leadership positions or because of emerging or existing critical needs. The FBI has no job called “Profiler.” Special supervisory officers assigned to the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime (NCAVC) in Quantico, VA, perform the tasks usually associated with profiling. Despite some popular representations, these FBI special agents do not have vibes or “psychic flashes” as they walk around new crime scenes. In reality, it is an exciting world of study and research – a world of inductive and deductive thinking, experience of crime and knowledge of criminal behaviour, facts and statistical probabilities. There is no typical day for a special agent. One day, you could execute a search warrant and make an arrest when they could testify in court the next day.
Your morning could catch up at the office, while the afternoon could bring a meeting with a high-level source. Less than two days are always the same for an FBI special agent. – Competitive wages and benefits outside residential areas with a high cost of living (e.g.B. California; NY, NY; NCR). – the ability to work in several specialized law enforcement and intelligence agencies. -Potential for travel to interesting territorial patterns and the potential to work on unique and challenging missions to help the Navy, USMC and DoD. The FBI has developed several programs to help employees achieve both their family and career goals. In addition to our normal annual leave and sick leave benefits, the Federal Family and Illness Leave Act (FMLA) allows workers to take up to 12 weeks of leave without payment for medical requirements, including the birth or adoption of a child.
