    I have been working at U.S. Government Accountability Office full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting topics to work on, work/ife balance, co-workers are pleasant, good travel if you're on the right team, good benefits.

    Cons

    Tedious at times, if you are on a bad team you're going to have a long 9-18 months finishing a project, too much structure at times which inhibits creativity, many layers of review, and little control over your own work, and limited promotion opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shorten engagements, not every engagement needs to be 9 months or longer. Become more efficient in the way we conduct out work.

    Pros

    Great culture, wonderful work-life balance, they really care about their employees. You also get to know projects in-depth, and get wonderful visibility with upper management. They care about career progression and provide helpful feedback for employees.

    Cons

    You work on one project continuously, so if you like lots of different tasks it may be boring.
