The pay really sucks but if you live in one of the USAOs in "fly over country" it's pretty sweet. Same with Federal Defenders.

Most AUSAs work very long hours. The job can be stressful. Being an AUSA is unlike most fed jobs, which are usually more 9-to-5 and chiller.

But AUSAs also tend to get paid less than most fed lawyers, who work on the GS pay-scale.
What federal government job would you consider "chiller" and true to 9-5?
Just any random federal lawyer in any random three-letter federal agency.

Yep. AUSAs are much lower paid when you think about the work they do.
Can you elaborate on this?

it's all worth it for that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you've successfully leveraged a draconian mandatory minimum to force someone to take a 15 year plea deal.

look up the AD payscale and then add 32% locality pay (though, of course, good luck figuring out where you fall in the relatively wide range that establishes): https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversig ... of-pay.pdf.

I've never really bothered figuring it out, but my general understanding is that AUSAs are compensated at significantly lower rates than fed lawyers on the GS scale, especially when you factor in that AUSA positions *tend* to be more sought after.

I am really interested in AUSA and want to shoot for the CDCA (Los Angeles). Where can I find pay info based on locality?
