    I have been working at Federal Bureau of Prisons full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Helpful co-workers were always willing to answer all of my questions. Learned a great deal about the United State federal prison system. No over time was necessary.

    Cons

    It should come as no surprise, that the federal government is rife with bureaucracy. I often felt that I was just signing off on a matter so that it could continue up the chain.
