But gets benefits, pension, lots of days off. That's a low salary though, esp for a tech job. Most gov't jobs pwn private ones nowadays anyway (didn't use to be the case) but tech pays better in private workforce.

Most good tech companies have good benefits, stock options, health care. Fed FERS is a shit pension...not worth that low salary

many years ago I applied to a patent examiner position, and then later withdrew my app, and then they emailed me and said, 'oh, we were gonna hire you'...bullshit

Weird that the job title is actually “Computer Scientist”. The description reads like your standard IT/Engineering jerb.

Yeah that was strange. Like they didn't know what a CS grad or developer does

as a patent agent working for a company I crossed paths with these guys--many of them are foreigners who barely speak english...their responses often were word salad consisting of copy and paste documents that sometimes made little sense...

A lot of those guys work from home a majority of the time, so if you're in a low COL area it's not bad.

Also, if you want to be a patent attorney, having a few years as an examiner is great. I know several folks who did a few years as an examiner, went to a mediocre LS (not true TTTs, but lower T1 and T2)--often on at least partial scholarship--and then did biglaw or one of the "boutique" IP firms like Fish, Finnegan, or the like.
