    I worked at Massachusetts Department of Education as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great, intelligent people who really cared about students
    Learned a lot and was given plenty of interesting projects to work on while not being overwhelmed with work

    Cons

    There were not a lot of cons, but also this was an internship position where I was not concerned about advancement or compensation.

    Pros

    Wide exposure allows to learn many various different things. ok environment. Good place for temp job.

    Cons

    The salary isn't proportional to knowledge. You might stay 20 years and get close to 100k and all that time do very little, or come in and do lots of work with small salary. HR sucks... It takes about 4 months to get all paperwork done if hired and salary - most of the times will be matched to the lowest salary in the group unless hired as a contractor. Salary Increases are very rare and its about 3% in a couple of years if you in IT dept.
