    I worked at U.S. Senate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to policymakers, experience gained relative to time, connections made, working on issues of national importance, relatively flexible work/life balance (unless your issue is up), unique place.

    Cons

    Work/life balance when your issues are up, political gridlock, can be a bad experience when in the minority, low pay, a lot of grindwork, endless meetings with lobbyists and constituents, your friends will email you about every issue since you're "in the government."

    Advice to Management

    Not really applicable - every office is different, office style and leadership flows from the member or Chief of Staff down.


  2. "Amazing"
