I have been working at US Department of State full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very interesting and awesome coworkers from a variety of backgrounds. Great opportunities for travel. Very solid upward mobility if you are willing to chase after it.

Cons

There is, sadly, the occasional stereotypical government employee to contend with, although I have to admit, it is far less of a problem than I had anticipated prior to transitioning to employment with the federal government.

Advice to Management

I would love to see more opportunities for temporary duty at posts abroad for domestic DoS employees.
