I have been working at US Department of State full-time for less than a year

Pros

No weekends, work with true professionals. Set working hours.

Cons

You really do not get a chance to get to know com workers. Everyone is expected to do their job without interruption. You must have exceptional attention do detail to do this job and the ability to apply applicable laws in approving passport applications.

Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - Political Section Summer Intern  in  Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Political Section Summer Intern in Washington, DC

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

    Pros

    Internship experience differs from office to office. The best case is if the office has substantive work to do, with fewer regular FSO's available. In that case, summer interns often fill in for actual FSO work, though it is closely supervised.

    Cons

    Summer interns may also have to do some office admin work.
