    Pros

    Experience, Experience, Experience. There is no better feeling than to go into an interview for another job with this on your resume. This is especially true if you end up working outside of the D.C. area, or in any lobbying field. They also have an amazing student loan repayment program.

    Cons

    The Pay. Like many jobs, Capitol Hill makes you scrape your way from the bottom. Don't expect to be a high roller working on the hill. However, the numerous events and experience make up for what they lack in regards to pay. Also, the hours are long, especially when in session.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to encourage staff to participate in "Staff-dels" and be more encouraging when staffers wish to pursue higher education.
