    Pros

    The people at GAO are dedicated to improving government, intelligent, and very capable. The collaborative spirit and high quality products are two other great aspects of GAO.

    Cons

    The only downside is that the budget, and henceforth promotions, hiring decisions, and pay raises are all contingent on Congress deciding to fund it appropriately. It is particularly difficult to plan ahead in years where the budget isn't passed prior to the new fiscal year and while the agency is functioning on a continuing resolution.
