I worked at CDC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

CDC is considered the standard for public health and there were plenty of opportunities for professional development such as attending talks and conferences and meeting other program staff.
Compensation was competitive and the benefits package was good.
Good work life balance.
Exciting challenges depending on the current public health trends.

Cons

Depending the the current Presidential administration program focus and priorities can change leading to declining morale.
There can be office politics but that is with any job.

    I worked at CDC full-time

    Pros

    One of the very best places to get exposure to a variety of opportunities in public health. I had a chance to meet a lot of interesting people and also help to understand what type of contribution I would like to make in public health.

    Cons

    The environment is very "top-down" oriented which leaves few opportunities for advancement for young people. It can also get to be very stagnant if you don't work in a branch that is dynamic and enjoys hearing new ideas.
