    Current Employee - Special Agent in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at US Department of State full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Worldwide Travel with limitless career development. An adventure at every post, but the life you can create for yourself is completely unique.

    Cons

    Time away from family on certain assignments. Large bureaucracy, so there are issues that are consistent with those institutions. Flexibility is a must in this organization because of the fluid nature of international politics and diplomacy. That said...you will be at the forefront of history in many situations.
