    I worked at Federal Bureau of Prisons full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I work for the Bureau of prisons were 24 years. It has unlimited growth potential. If you desire it. Endless overtime, continuous training, mentorship, for those who want to move forward. If all you want to do is show up for work for a paycheck, then there is not much growth for you. If you are lazy. There is no world for you.

    Cons

    the Bureau is a paramilitary operations has to be when dealing with the most dangerous felons, so they must be some form of structure in order to keep them in line. If you have no work ethic, then this would be a negative place for you to work you get what you put into it. Let's be honest, you know exactly what your job entails. prior, to accepting the job so either mature up global find something else.
