    I have been working at US Patent and Trademark Office full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The collegiality, pay, flexibility, respect for hard work and intelligence, and community of scientists and engineers is fantastic. I know of no other organization where scientific and engineering employees are at every level of management, and firmly in charge of the organization. Being in a union has benefits with respect to clearly understanding your job requirements. You have a very clear understanding of what is required of you, and what your rewards will be.

    Cons

    Mentally taxing work. Difficult to engage meaningfully with work where you are not a creative contributor, but a judge and legal examiner. There is a lack of tangibility in your work product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is doing a great job adjusting incentives to focus the examining corps on mission objectives. The work-life balance is phenomenal. Unrivaled anywhere.
