I worked at United States House of Representatives as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

It is very intriguing to see everything at work on Capitol Hill, especially the hearings. You get a very good sense on how everything comes together. You are also working with colleagues who are both very well educated and very dedicated to their careers.

Cons

Apparently, one of the down sides to working in Congress would be the long hours. Be prepared to work a very demanding schedule as a Hill staffer.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at United States House of Representatives full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is basically mindless and nothing is really that demanding. Lot of young people on the Hill. Great way to meet people.

    Cons

    Basically one of the lowest paying jobs out there. I could have made more as a tollbooth attendant. Can become very high stress at times having to deal with crazies calling in.

    Advice to Management

    pay more
