    I have been working at South Carolina Department of Natural Resources full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible. Working in this program gives you experience at sea on large vessels for research cruises. One can also acquire safety certifications and the chance to work with other programs within the SCDNR.

    Cons

    The amount the state pays is not sufficient! Also working while at sea can be strenuous as well as being away from land for extended periods of time. Many tasks can become monotonous. There is not much room to move up the financial ladder with this job unless someone resigns or retires from a higher position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If anything I would say for management to push harder for better pay for employees. There needs to be more connectedness of tasks at hand. For example, there should be goals for the employees to work toward. This would help keep employees motivated as well as diligent in their work.
