    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Foreign and Commonwealth Office full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The experience of a lifetime and a hell of a resume builder.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement if you're an American... unless in-which case you may be a suck-up.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth to those you fire.
