      Pros

      Great pay and benefits. It is an excellent career with a lot of opportunities. Do your job, take advantage of training and you'll be rewarded.

      Cons

      Not good for a family life. It is hard to relocate closer to family, that's the reason of some agents leaving the agency or switching to other components within DHS.

      Pros

      The job has ample opportunity for overtime. I left as a gs 11 step 5. I made well over $100,000 a year. In addition to the pay and benefits, I felt that I made a difference in my community. I intercepted numerous narcotics and alien smuggling attempts.

      Cons

      Long hours away from family. Last minute notice of overtime after working a full 8 hour shift.
