    Pros

    Access to federal and state employees; travel; friends; make a difference; good way to get foot in the door if you want to work for FEMA.

    Cons

    AmeriCorps administrators do not care about YOU as an individual, they are more focused on you as a worker. Personal matters and personalities are rarely tolerated if they do not conform to their "standards"; a bit unorganized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a third party that corps members can turn to. This is not jail or the military, corps members are volunteers taking time out of their lives to serve their communities. Please treat with respect. We are not cheap laborers for the government!
