I worked at US Department of Defense full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Good job security
- Good benefits
- Excellent travel ops

Cons

- Working with government employees was one of the most eye opening and discouraging experience I have ever had. Coming from the private sector, I could only make it about 6 months before I had to leave. It takes a certain kind of person that enjoys that sort of environment.

Advice to Management

Serious house cleaning is needed.

    I worked at US Department of Defense as an intern

    Pros

    Stellar people, committed to their jobs. Always a helping hand. Personally, it was fulfilling knowing that even the most mundane tasks were vital to the mission.

    Cons

    Those that are not current/prior military will experience a steep learning curve in terms of culture and language. But it's not insurmountable.
