    I worked at New York City Department of Finance full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with several other PhDs on topics of interest with discernible impact on NYC residents. We had an incredible amount of exposure to upper level management (e.g. - Deputy Commissioner and Commissioner). Much of our work was actually implemented, which is a rare outcome.

    Cons

    Unsustainable cost of living accretion relative to salary growth. The relationship with the unions is somewhat unfortunate in that there was an unnecessary level of acrimony between permanent and provisional members. Nevertheless, if your skin isn't thick enough to handle that, you probably won't remain in the five boroughs anyhow.
