    I have been working at US Patent and Trademark Office full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a contractor, it depends entirely who you work for. I am fortunate enough to have found a decent spot. The atmosphere is surprisingly lax and the campus is wonderful.

    Cons

    Be wary of typical government egos walking around - your usual political games. Never say anything outside of safe chit chat while in mixed company. Don't break any rules, including the ones everyone just skips over and signs on the first day. Recently saw a contractor fired just for logging in internationally to help a coworker while she was on vacation. If you can keep yourself off the blotter, you'll be just fine.
