    Pros

    The stability and pay are exceptional. The job is boring as hell, and you have almost no exit options.

    Cons

    Middle-management is awful. The entire place is a bureaucratic nightmare. I'd rather jump off a bridge than work here. It was the biggest mistake of my life accepting the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go get a real job in the private sector.

    I worked at US Patent and Trademark Office full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom, schedule, people, training, salary

    Cons

    Honestly I can't think of anything. Maybe for some people the work can get routine. It never did for me. Some people think the workload is heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!
