New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection
I worked at New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection part-time (less than a year)Pros
In my experience it was very interesting and meaningful work. It's also a very good working environment; people are very friendly and helpful. I was an intern, and people would go out of their way to make sure I felt welcomed and had all the resources I needed for my project. I was also assigned a very interesting and pertinent project right off the bat, not just "busy work."Cons
Internships are usually unpaid.
From what I heard from full-time employees, the work experience can vary significantly depending on your office or program. This is the main reason I didn't give 5 stars (my office would have been 5 stars).
The cubicles are small-ish and the cafeteria food is mediocre.
The type and volume of work can be somewhat dependent upon the current political administration and the programs they wish to pursue. Nonetheless, I believe it is easy to find rewarding, meaningful projects in any administration.RecommendsNeutral Outlook
