Pros

-Some cool special events and guest speakers from local and international government officials.

Cons

-Extremely stressful government position dealing with possible furloughs and constantly shrinking budget
-Stale environment on financial floor

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Other offices seem to have a lot more fun, but in OBA it was extremely boring, uninteresting and stressful.

    Pros

    Working at the Peace Corps led me onto my current career path, which I continue on today. I am grateful for the experience and still think that no other organization compares

    Cons

    There can, at times, be too much bureaucracy and red tape. At the same time, it is a government run organization so some of that is to be expected.
