    I have been working at AmeriCorps full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best times of ya life.
    Meaningful work and challenge.
    Travel the country and make friends on a stipend.

    Cons

    Government shut-downs impair training and access to resources.
    SW administration is latently prejudiced against minorities.
    Corps members will be retained despite desperately needing to be kicked out in order to keep member counts up.
    The health insurance seems to have upset and confused every corps member who's dared to try and use it.
