    Former Intern - Political Section Summer Intern in Beijing, Beijing (China)

    I worked at US Department of State as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting, meaningful and sometimes quite exciting work; smart people, especially in POL and ECON; opportunities to travel around the world; included and paid intensive language training; etc.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic -- less so in POL and ECON, but still gets in the way of efficiency decently often. The foreign service lifestyle is great for the right type of adventurous and outgoing family, but can be problematic if your spouse is not the adventurous type, has not traveled much in the past, and/or has little interest in traveling, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.

    I have been working at US Department of State full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None, there really no positive things about working here. It is a dead end job from the minute you walk in.

    Cons

    No professional growth, no training, no morale, no respect for Uncle Sam's money, no care for employees, no mentoring, you get the point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into solving morale issues.
