Pros

Decent salary, excellent benefits, working environment, travel rewards and incentives. You get federal employee discounts on a plethora of goods and services, and you get 10 paid federal holidays per year. The OCC is a non-appropriated federal agency, so it is not subject to federal pay/hiring freezes.

Cons

It's still public sector work, so you won't get rich. However, you will be very comfortable. Travel can get tedious at times.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, amazing benefits, small organization that allows you to get to know a lot of people both in DC and throughout the country

    Cons

    Pay is not on the GS scale, so very few "ladder" positions are available. The pay bands are extremely wide (talking $40k+ from bottom to top) and pay raises are based on "performance" although it seemed to be more based on politics. Depends on your manager. Also, not a great place to grow if you are not an accountant/financial analyst.
