The DOJ is a great place to work if you are single, but if you intend to be a family person, it sucks. Long hours, lots of travel, and you do not get paid enough.
I loved being a prosecutor but when your friends are making 250-300k a year and you are only making 120k and working twice as hard, it gets a little long.
When the entire country tells you you are not worth the little you get paid, it also is defeating. No appreciation and upper management is way too political.
