    I have been working at United States Department of Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and salary for public sector work. Very steep learning curve. Relatively breezy compared to private sector, but maybe because the work is more interesting. Pretty open dialogue in Strategic Programs Office.

    Cons

    Around half the time dealing with information requests and interagency BS as well as bureaucratic process. It seems like half the people come here to settle down. There are some go-getters though. Rather stale cultural environment.
