Forensic Computer Analyst Reviews

What is it like working as a Forensic Computer Analyst?
Forensic Computer Analyst in Baltimore:
"Computer Forensic Analyst."
Pros: Working for the government exposes you to a huge organization with many opportunities. You get to interface with people and systems across a wide range of enterprises that you just would not get in the private sector.
Cons: The current fiscal environment makes it impossible to retain solid talent, combined with a hiring freeze, you will be overworked and underpaid for the work you do. Even if you impress your upper management, broader DoD policy hampers them from rewarding you. Everyone you work with will do at least 5 different jobs and approvals to do things takes weeks, making even the simplest tasks Herculean efforts.
