    I worked at US Agricultural Research Service full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, very flexible schedule, lots of vacation and sick time.

    Cons

    Because of the way the labs are set up, there is nowhere to move, no promotion to a better position or lateral transfers. And you are always at the mercy of the federal budget. They don't hire full time permanent anymore, so every 4 years you have to reapply for your job, and hiring decisions are done in DC, so you might not even get an interview for the job that you did for 4 years with good reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Hire full time permanent
