    I have been working at Children's National Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is hard to feel sorry for yourself working at a children's hospital. This truly is a rewarding place to be. As a research engineer, there is a lot of autonomy to drive your own projects and contributions to projects. You kind of set your own hours in this department, but that sometimes means working a lot. There are lots of benefits, such as matched retirement contributions, group healthcare, and pre-tax commuting options.

    Cons

    There is a lot of bureaucracy, as comes with any large employer. Not too many vacation days.
