Although it has been less than a year, I am very, very happy at DoS so far.

Passport Specialist (Current Employee)

ProsVery interesting and awesome coworkers from a variety of backgrounds. Great opportunities for travel. Very solid upward mobility if you are willing to chase after it.

ConsThere is, sadly, the occasional stereotypical government employee to contend with, although I have to admit, it is far less of a problem than I had anticipated prior to transitioning to employment with the federal government.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would love to see more opportunities for temporary duty at posts abroad for domestic DoS employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
