      Solid

      Jun 4, 2021 - Financial Analyst in Washington, DC

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good place to get exposure to the Federal Government. Mission-oriented. Plenty of smart people. Great location and benefits.

      Cons

      Subject to politics/bureaucracy. Priorities can change on a dime based on Federal elections. Very traditional and credential-driven rather than meritocratic. High ratio of lawyers/non-lawyers creates a hierarchy and skews priorities.
