    I have been working at US Postal Service full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Current base of about $62,000, easily make $70K plus, inclusive of overtime. Government benefits are unrivaled. I attended graduate school at night, my bosses were very helpful and cooperative with my school schedule. However, on that note, I was unusually fortunate with the supervisors and station managers that I had. I had great folks to work for, and that may well not be the norm at USPS.

    Cons

    Possibly management, depending on where you work; you may not be treated like an adult. Work is outdoors in all weather conditions.

    Advice to Management

    I've been lucky, no doubt about it. Treat your employees well, and they will treat you well in return.
