      Pros

      You come in contact with many professionals, individuals, and situations that you would otherwise never encounter.

      Cons

      Again, you come in contact with many professionals, individuals, and situations that you would otherwise never encounter. The work/life balance is almost nonexistent as you get piled on with crisis after crisis, paperwork after paperwork, and bureaucracy run by so much regulations that you can hardly breathe. (However, it is understandable since you are dealing with incredibly sensitive and delicate situations.) All of my coworkers confessed that they never dealt with this much stress in their entire lives. So if you are OK with having limited time off work, constant stress at its highest level, LOW PAY ($40K if you have experience or a master's degree. If not, your starting pay is around $38K.), and bureaucracy then this may be a good fit for you. Don't forget the fact that you will be dealing with raw human emotions and that your decisions will have real-life impact on people's lives regardless how correct those decisions are.
