    I have been working at Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get state holidays and federal holidays off (which equals about a month a year) and the benefits aren't bad- an employer match on retirement, and decent health insurance. Also, conservation work is inherently satisfying.

    Cons

    Depends on the organization under RCUH you work for, but for the most part, conservation is severely underfunded in Hawaii, and your take-home salary will most likely not be competitive (for Hawaii or the mainland US) or what you deserve for your hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more oversight for individual managers within this organization. My current supervisor is incredibly unpopular, but there is little that can be done in terms of disciplining this person, getting them out of the position, or better yet, getting them the leadership training they need. As a result, we've had 4 people leave in the past year who have been loyal employees for years (until this person came into the supervisor position.)

    Interviewer was nervous, didn't appear organized. Asked me a bunch of stock questions related to conservation in Hawaii, with no surprises. Only one interview was needed.
