I worked at US Department of State as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Well structured, organized, and has a great chain of communication for discussing about issues. Overall, it was a great atmosphere that really help develop personal abilities.

Cons

A lot of employees makes it seem easy to get lost among the crowd. It is also difficult to show yourself and your work among the crowd, previously mentioned, especially as a contractor.

    Fantastic overall mission that gives an employee sense of purpose and drive. No other institution can have more impact on the functioning on U.S. foreign policy.

    Cons

    Thick and immobile bureaucracy can limit one's daily function to menial tasks that seem distant from the broader objective of the Department.
