Pros: it is very satisfing when a difficult contract is signed and all parties are happy.

The work of a Grants and Contracts Officer is very detailed and private information. The day varies by what deadlines are current. It can be a day of review and submitting proposals for research funding from federal, non-federal, state, local, for profit companies or foundations. Or review and finalizing of contracts or subcontracts of all kinds.
