- FDA experience is marketable, if you look to change careers down the road
- federal government benefits

Cons- big government red-tape
- when decisions come down from above, no ability to negotiate (it is how it is)

- HR is done through the Office of Personal Management = disorganized, takes a long time for hiring paperwork to go through
- no DC metro stop near FDA headquarters in White Oak
