    Pros

    Its office administrative work. You work office hours, 8-5 and get a lot of paid holidays off. Professional atmosphere and opportunities to grow and move up in position.

    Cons

    It is public service, so if you are looking for something "glamorous", find something else. You work for the state and you represent the state.
