    I worked at Commonwealth of Virginia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    long-term benefits, promotion opportunities, salary, mostly secure for long-term job, holidays, many co-workers. Many skills transfer between agencies, so you can apply for other jobs if wanted.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can make things move very slowly and can increase a lot of unnecessary paperwork. There were more internal "power-struggles" than I would have expected.
