I worked at United States Department of Energy as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Get exposed to how government technology programs work and how they are run through the country. Get to see the big picture of technology and how its impacting the economy.

Cons

Government work is a bit different than working for the private sector. At times it can be much slower, with more politics involved.

    I have been working at United States Department of Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good, old-fashioned, benefits, with the expectation and the capability to change the world, legally. A good place to blend technology with policy.

    Cons

    Way, way, too much bureaucracy, with contradictory rules and political tender spots. Department needs a clearly stated mission a la DOD

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't spend your entire budget every year, come hell or high water, and make choices that are sensible from a practical, rather than a political, perspective.
