I worked at National Park Service full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Not only do you get to work in a beautiful place with people who share the same values as you, but you get to do something that you are passionate about everyday.

Cons

A "pickle suit", uniform, is not a particularly wonderful item of clothing to wear, but a fair price to pay for a great job

Advice to Management

Protect our Wilderness designated areas diligently.
