I worked at US Department of State full-time

Pros

The diplomatic immunity is always nice, as was the lifestyle, and in this economic climate you can't beat the job security.

Cons

You will have very little control over what you do and where you live. This is a large bureaucracy, it is incredibly outdated, inflexible, and un-acommodating.
