I have to chuckle every time I see these types of articles. I do know that the gov't is dumping money into these programs but you would have to wonder if they are being competitive with the compensation packages. Not to mention the people they are looking for are most likely happy with what they are doing and for who. Some of them also probably don't want a target on their back which is another negative for working for a gov't body. And uh... 600? Good luck with that DHS!
