It's a great place, especially if you want a laid back place. The primary problem, that exists within most governments, is the apathy and inefficiency. I would rather have stringent deadlines than work in such disarray. Maybe it's the particular office I am in, but the lack of passion really weighs down on you after a while. If I had a family and less ambition, I would most certainly appreciate the job security and benefits a lot more than I do now.
