Pros

Working for DoD gives you an opportunity to support some very unique, interesting, and important missions and technology.

Cons

Not all DoD work is unique or interesting, though I think most of it is important. If you are a hands-on tech type, I would tend to stay away as most of that work gets contracted out and the gov't folks just do oversight and "management." It is very difficult to move up the ranks and mainatin a tech focus.
