    I have been working at US Department of Justice full-time

    Pros

    Mobility: Working for a federal agency allows you to move to other cities throughout your career
    Great benefits: matching 401K, generous leave/vacation, long term care option, medical coverage for retirement
    Career growth: Able to move into specialties over the years for professional growth (and often higher pay grades too)
    Salary: Stable. When I started in government service the market was booming and my friends were making fun of me for being on a much lower salary scale. But in recent years since the market bottomed out, it's interesting how everyone now thinks my salary is awesome. (I've never had complaints about it at any time, in truth). So I suppose "stable" is the best way to describe the salary. And of course it's been literally stable since the 2010 pay freeze.

    Cons

    When Congress doesn't do their job and pass the budget...then we operate on a "continuing resolution" for up to six months and our mission suffers.
    When Congress doesn't do their job and balance the budget...then we (not them) get furloughed.
    Major bureaucracy and prevalence of individual agendas

    Advice to Management

    Strive harder to maintain professional integrity.
