Overall, a decent place to work
Regional Security Officer (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 29 January 2017
The Foreign Service side of the State Department is extremely demanding, regardless of your specialty. Officers will typically spend a majority of their careers overseas, especially working in austere environments. Frequent assignments, relocation, and demanding work environs make it extremely challenging for some individuals. If you like to travel, take pride in serving your country and have the support of family, then working for the State Department may be a career worth considering.
