    Pros

    Work environment is very pleasant and engaging. Staff are generally thoughtful recent graduates that care about the policy issues. Can be exciting place to work during budget and intense end of sessions. Work/life balance is best part of job. Very flexible as long as work is completed.

    Cons

    As with all public sector jobs, salaries are low. Jobs are best suited for those straight out of school or at the beginning of their careers. Difficult to support a family at salary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide environment that supports innovative ideas and creative ways to solve policy issues. Many staff have terrific ideas that need an ear and critical consideration.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

    Interview

    Applied online. I was working as a temp employee within a different unit of the lab, Was informed by HR about an in-person interview. Basic interview with (2) supervisors and (1) HR representative. The questions were all focused on my prior experience and why I believe I am a strong candidate for the position. Overall process was very long, though. 6+ months from when I applied. The background check took several weeks.
