Great experience, good benefits, hard work

Foreign Service Officer (Former Employee)

ProsYou get to really be at the front lines of diplomacy. The job of a foreign service officer is very well respected and the benefits are great (free housing, home leave, medical care). Plus, you get to see the world.

ConsMoving every few years can become wearing. The Dept. of State is very much USG and as such there is a high level of bureaucracy to navigate.

Advice to Senior ManagementFlexibility with part-time or leave without pay after people become parents would probably help with employee retention.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
