The State Department strives to achieve gender balance through the recruitment process, and offers equal opportunities for growth and leadership throughout your career. Men still out number women at the top ranks, but there have been a number of female senior leaders, including Secretaries of State and Ambassadors. A diplomatic career can be extremely rewarding professionally, but it can be tough on families and male “trailing” spouses.

Satisfied Rater


Very Satisfied Rater
Early Career

Impressive personnel with an incredible diversity of expertise and global experiences, educational credentials, and a knack for problem solving.

Indifferent Rater

Still stuck in the 1950s - mostly "Yale, pale, and male." Staying true to the stereotype, with droves leaving as a result of dissatisfaction. Particularly hard on women and families.

Unsatisfied Rater

It would be wonderful if the DoS implemented all of the employee programs & benefits they write about, but they don’t. If you’re a new young employee & thinking of starting a family, keep in mind that you earn 2.6 weeks of paid annual leave and 2.6 weeks of paid sick leave during each of your first three yeas with the government.
