I worked at U.S. Government Accountability Office full-time (more than an year)

Pros

My team was very smart; full of highly educated people
On any engagement, you will work with different specialists such as policy evaluation experts, economists, data analysts, and regular analysts
There is ongoing training research methods

Cons

Sometimes it required long hours to get a project done for a deadline

Some research units are swamped with lots of work because multiple teams are giving them work
Data analysts seemed overworked and asked to do things they couldn't because some other team members did not understand what can or cannot be done using statistical software

Teams sometimes squabble over engagements and it's easy to pass blame

Reports must adhere to exacting standards of accuracy
