>>9581584>Low-level government engineering jobs pay like $10,000 below competitive, or more. They're known for their benefits and for being kinda laid-back, at least for civilian positions.>this meme again
nsa employee here. hired as a math grad. been working for a little under a year. it is not laid back compared to my bank internship. the math guys at the bank would spend a few hours a day coding and a few hours a month writing up new models. and some statistical bitchwork occasionally. like if someone was sick
im a year into the nsa, expected to read and learn something every week, keep up with latest research in a few math fields, take my work home when needed and im still being trained in classes the senior level guys teach
muh govt workers are lazy is a meme reserved for like city planners and dmv desk monkeys.
the good thing about working for the govt is they waive your student loans or psy them for you. but yea youre right about the less competitive wage. its worth for me tho
fun fact, the guys who work here are not war obsessed, hyper conservative, bible worshipping "patriots." they are pretty liberal and think that america is a country worth working for>>9581581
the beaucracy is only slightly more consuming than a private sector job but the private sector just fucks it off most of the time. bureaucracy and paperwork make the world turn.
