    I have been working at FEMA

    Pros

    Great job and wonderful people to work with. Assisted the community in rebuild following the natural disaster. Worked with the governors office, local mayors, counties and public communities to rebuild storm damaged elements.

    Cons

    They follow a chain of command similar to a military structure. Good for delivering services during a disaster.
