    Pros

    You will never get this much career advancement in such a short amount of time. You are often fast tracked to a management position. Learning is non-stop and you are usually always attending some type of advanced school or training.

    Cons

    Spent too much time worrying about things like suicide prevention, worthless online classes, and sexual harassment problems. It was also very difficult to choose when you wanted to go on vacation. The government bureaucracy often overflowed into personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Target programs that focus on results and not the ones that simply fix the symptoms.
