    I worked at Smithsonian full-time

    Pros

    -I was allowed to ease into my position and not have a bunch of work dumped on me at the start

    -I was given opportunities to do more than my job description (in a good way)

    -My co-workers were a funny, open, supportive, non-passive-aggressive group

    Cons

    -I wasn't used to working in such a huge organization, so it took some time to get used to having 500 or so co-workers.
