    I have been working at US Patent and Trademark Office full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, get to learn about various ideas, good pay

    Cons

    Management only cares about numbers & does not value good employees. Basically I was told because I was smart & did well, that was the reason I kept getting moved around to different art units & forced to learn new things with new incompetent supervisors while other employees that did not catch on got to sit around & not be challenged. Be very careful of not doing too well. Management will catch up & end up using you to achieve their end goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your good employees if you want to keep them happy as opposed to using them & forcing them into situations where they have no choice.
