    I worked at Ohio BWC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    if you want an experience that will match your interests and field of study, I highly recommend the BWC. My supervisor and the employers around me truly care about the work that I did. With that said, be open minded and take any opportunity given because it will, at the very end, be worth it.

    Cons

    1) Being an external applicant, it is VERY difficult to be reviewed by hiring managers as the first dibs for employment opportunities goes to bargaining unit/union members.

    2) No room in my position for me to move up in my career at the Bureau d/t strategic planning and development
