    I worked at FCC full-time

    Pros

    Great people, really patient and excellent place to learn with the training wheels on. Promising future if you impress your superiors and stay committed.

    Cons

    Easy to get bogged down and bored in government red tape and the slow bureaucratic drafting process.
