    Pros

    the people are all friendly and great to work with, the work itself involves helping others and is very rewarding, and the schedule and benefits are very flexible and family-friendly

    Cons

    sometimes we have to work within budgetary constraints when Washington can't agree on how to fund the government, sometimes this means wondering if the government will stay open as we read about on the news

    I worked at US Department of Labor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    dedication to mission, hardworking, intelligent people, some flexibility in work hours, good union, get your own office; a great history going back to FDR; a lot of established traditions are part of the culture and add value and learning to the experience.

    Cons

    competitive, some people don't work hard so if you are a hard worker you will get a lot of responsibility and possibly more than your share of the work; it's a place with highs and lows and a certain intensity that can be exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to appreciate all who support the mission, not just the squeaky wheel;

    Keep up the good work. Maybe provide more opportunities for interns to get involved. Some more on site interviews or something of the sort would break up the tedious work at times.
