    I have been working at State of Louisiana part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There’s always coffee and water and tea, lunch for student works is paid for a lot (very appreciated) and the staff is super friendly!

    Cons

    Very busy during session, working 12-14 hour days for 1-2 weeks at a time as well as there being very last minute changes to meetings that makes fixing them beforehand a time issue... which is all to be expected in politics anyways.
