IC ranked top place to work

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) ranked as one of the top 10 Best Places to Work in the U.S. government, according to a recent independent analysis.

The rankings were based on federal workers' job satisfaction and commitment and were put together by the Partnership for Public Service (PPS) and American University's Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation (ISPPI). The secret agency ranked tenth overall among 32 large organizations, each of which employs more than 2,000 people. For ODNI, it is the second consecutive year it has landed in the top 10 list.

"The fact that the IC [Intelligence Community] placed in the top ten for two consecutive years reflects a work force understanding of the critical role they fill and the importance of our national security mission," said Army Lt. Gen. John F. Kimmons, director of the intelligence staff for the ODNI, in an agency press release.

Among the other top 10 places to work in the federal government were a few players in Top Secret America, such as the U.S. Justice Department and the State Department. Other top places included the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Government Accountability Office, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Social Security Administration.
