Pros

Benefits excellent: Flexi time, great training opportunities, easy to move into or out of part time, professional subscriptions paid, etc.
High levels of responsibility at all levels.
Mission makes the difference. You are often making a real difference to the country and its people.
Lots of intelligent people can make it a stimulating environment to work within.

Cons

You'll not get rich, financially at least. Salaries are fair (especially at graduate entry and high grades) though not too competitive in between, especially for IT specialists.
Can be quite bureaucratic, with particular ways to get stuff done.
