I worked at National Park Service full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The work is very dynamic. Your days are split between working in the visitor center, the entrance fee station, checking campground sites, and hiking trails. You're always busy and in a beautiful place, and you get the added benefit of feeling good about yourself for helping protect the environment!

Cons

The uniform you are required to wear is ugly, and they don't let you keep your body piercings.
