I have been working at Government of Canada as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Depending on the department, I found the job and experience challenging and satisfying. Excellent mentorship opportunities. Enjoyed quite a bit of autonomy and still felt part of the group.

Cons

At the time there were fewer younger people working there, so not as social as I would have liked.
