    I have been working at Will County Forest Preserve full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The mission of the organisation is great and they do try to protect the environment. When possible, they try to be flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    Top heavy with management. Too many 15-20 year employees more concerned about making it to early retirement then doing their jobs effectively. Culture is to remove struggling employees rather than improve them. More and more becoming political. Outdated job descriptions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Several have openly admitted how low morale is and yet beyond getting us a salary increase (the first in four years that is about to be countered by lesser health insurance), very little, if anything is done. Pay more attention to your jobs and less to your retirement date. Don't let the organization get completely micromanaged by political figures. You like to boast that we are not as corrupt as Cook County--show it.
