Pros

get to engage in interesting analytical work for countries and emerging economies if you are in international affairs office; encourage mobility and transfer to other offices to gain more exposure and experience

Cons

at times slow is work; a lot less quantitative and a lot more about strong writing skills than one would think; office culture can be a bit of a drag sometimes as many people take themselves a little too seriously, but government agencies in particular are known for being a bit stuffy

Advice to Management

my boss in particular was wonderful about treating me without kid gloves as an intern; i recommend that other offices do the same because I would proudly recommend other interns to work for the office I was in
