ProsGov't Jobs still have the best benefits. Outstanding time off. Normally 40 hours for salary position. Budget cuts like everyone else, do your part and don't take the pens home! Matter in fact if you want one that writes, bring your own. Not to many social interuptions if you don't have a Phd., Peaceful!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
