I worked at US Department of Justice part-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

A secure job with a ton of gifted legal and paralegal professionals, many of whom care about what they do so much that they forego much bigger-dollar salaries in the private sector. Much collaborative assistance and good professional development opportunities and training. Arguably the foremost location in the world for legal policy wonks.

Cons

Often long hours and time pressures, but then that comes with the legal work world.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't cut back on your library staff.
