"High Intensity."
Pros: The exposure and experience to different types of technology was nice and a great experience.

Employees take on additional responsibilities of individuals that leave the agency but those employees are never compensated for the additional work that they take on. We receive comp time but are criticized when we try to use it, and when we do we come back to a pile of work.
