Great place to work!
The DOJ (or DOJR as they are called now) are a fantastic government organisation to work with. They are very supportive, and pride themselves on continued grown and education of their employees.

A typical day as a LCCO showed numerous supervision appointments with offenders, case notes, updating online databases and investigative services. The role of a LCCO is very interesting and I would do this again in a heartbeat!
Pros
Great working environment, varied work, great support
Cons
contract work and hard to gain ongoing
