    I have been working at US Department of State full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good employer, good benefits, strict hours

    Cons

    if at a non-DC location, promotions require relocating or finding a different employer

    Advice to Management

    allow team members to spend time on their own career advancement. This will let them see more opportunities on where they can go within the department


  2. "Great experience if you pick the right section"

    I was lucky to work in a great section (Public Diplomacy), but unless you enjoy the work, you won't have a good time.
