    Retirement package is good, you have the option to retire earlier than private sector counterparts and have access to superior retirement plans through the Civil Services Retirement System (CSRS) or the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS). Under both plans, retired employees receive an annuity, complemented by Social Security benefits and participation in the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), which offers 401(k)-type investment options.

    DoD has the best benefit package in the industry. They offer paid annual leave, sick leave, and a great 401 plan with matching funds to full and part-time employees.
