    I worked at Federal Government full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My experience working for the federal government was as a staffer for a US Senator in his main state office. The benefits were top notch, we had all of the major holidays off as well as vacation time that was comparable with local private companies. A federal job is a GREAT gateway opportunity with many advantages!!

    Cons

    It can be difficult to advance professional if you're not willing to change agencies and/or relocate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are people so cliquish behavior happens but those in management need to be more aware of it when they're the participants!!

  8. good job and security

    I have been working at Federal Government full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work is interesting and I have a lot of freedom to handle cases the way I want to at the administrative level. The type of work takes years of practice to learn all the nuances, so it stays interesting and never gets dull. There are great opportunities to move around the world, if I choose.

    Cons

    Sometimes I don't have control of cases when they get to federal court. The bureaucracy can be quite dusnting, at times. Salaries are limited to pay scales and not necessarily based on one's work, though the salaries are good.
