    Pros

    The work product is unique. The benefits are good - especially pension plan and pro. The work is autonomous - I never see my manager or coworkers.

    I worked at US Department of Treasury full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really smart, dedicated and energetic coworkers
    I was in a policy-making office -- you get opportunities to see and do things you just can't do in the private sector
    Job stability

    Cons

    Government bureaucracy is as painful on the inside as on the outside. Things take forever to get done, and people often rotate out of key positions before you can accomplish what you want to with them.

    The rules and regulations about what employees can and cannot do are overwhelming. They sap energy and invite complacency.

    Advice to Management

    Really, seriously commit to fostering innovation among employees. Welcome employees' mistakes as opportunities to learn, and encourage employees to take risks.
