    I have been working at US Department of State full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work is extremely interesting and is can affect millions

    Cons

    The workplace is very hierarchical. If you're junior, it's frowned upon if you ever try to speak to someone senior. It's demoralizing.
