I have been working at NIH full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Job Stability with a fixed schedule, typically only 40 hours/week and can't beat the overall benefits.

Cons

Very little on the downside, except possible the actually salaries for Fed. Gov't can be a bit less than their counter parts in Private sector
