    Pros

    GAO is a great place to work with the ability to learn about a broad variety of subjects very quickly; you are given a lot of responsibility and are able to interview top officials across government and elsewhere.

    Cons

    GAO is very risk averse and this can result in not making recommendations that another consulting-style organization might. In addition, promotions can be sometimes dependent on history with GAO instead of ability.
