    Pros

    This is an excellent opportunity to earn your livelihood while enjoying and experiencing both world: extreme lavish and sub-human conditions. Being in the preventive department of this service provides you exposure to the areas one can never imagine in his life at the same time have thrills of snooping, catching and prosecuting the white color criminals. while doing this, to enhance your personality you can always endeavor in the area of sports, cultural activities like performing arts, literature etc. through inter/intra departmental competitions. In short, joining in the preventive cadre in this service would never give you sense of incomplete job satisfaction.

    Cons

    Being with Customs is like you will be always considered as a corrupt person even if you are honest to the core. Like all other revenue earning departments of Govt. like Income Tax, Service Tax, Land Revenue and others, the media and the common people will not leave a chance to see you through tinted glass. It takes time to prove your honesty but it is always like fixing a broken glass.

    Advice to Management

    This is a very BIIIIIIG department .The department has multiple parallel procedures to answer the problems of the employees. Hence no advice to the management are required to be given in this public domain.

    Pros

    Post of Examiner (Custom Inspector) in Central Board of Excise and Custom is one of the best job of Central Govt. This post enjoys huge power and respect in society. Salary and promotion is also good. Employees are rewarded money according to their duty and work. Potential if earning money by unethical means is huge. Will get to learn a lot of Custom and excise laws. Later on retirement any private company can offer you package of 20 LPA if you are in good health.

    Cons

    Nature of job is little bit hectic though there is only 5 days a week work.
