As a graduating MPA student, I can testify that this is an extremely salient topic for my classmates and me. Although the lure of the federal government (especially under the aegis of an Obama administration that is actively recruiting) is strong, my experience in local county government (economic development) has been very satisfying, and I would certainly consider state or local government opportunities.

There are pros and cons on either side, from size and impact to compensation. As the old saying goes, bigger is not necessarily better!
