Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This is the best place to start if you're an adventurous person and if you like the fitness lifestyle. A great place to explore the greatness of weapons and explosives, a place where 'intelligence ' and technology is of great significance . A place where discipline is a daily lesson. A field of many careers to choose from.

The field and shooting and safety measures

Working in this environment is okay and not that challenging when you are not deployed outside the country ...the salary is not enough though and the job is dangerous as one can die at deployments...the working environment is exciting too and we are a different culture.we live with our military rules and it’s enjoyable

Pros

Yes

Cons

Normal working hours unless if you on guard duty

I enjoyed going to the shooting range and doing the fitness test

The best part about my job was the fitness level ,staying healthy and fit was a priority. My job also gave me the opportunity to travel the country and meet new people, working in the office helped me improve my computer skills.

Pros

Travel around the country

Cons

Staying in the field

I can say it is not a job but a calling.

I happened to get a chance to receive the best military experience. I gained knowledge about security of the country and its people in accordance with the constitution and the law. I gained knowledge in gathering, compiling and dissemination of classified information. I learned to be discipline and follow orders. I learned to live and follow a routine.

Pros

Deployments

Cons

Growth

Best thing I ever did

Joining the military is the best choice one could ever make. The friends you make become family. The skills will stay with you for ever. You are trained to be prepared for any situation with or without warning.

Pros

Free food and accommodation

Cons

There really is nobe

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?

it is not a productive enviroment

we work with all races but when it comes to promotions it then favors other races' it becomes a challenge for the young black Africans do develop as it is mostly filled with black Africans but they are less considered when it comes to empowerment n promotions.
