Life on the move

Environmental Specialist (Current Employee)

ProsGreat pay, amazing opportunities for the kinds of work you can't do in the private sector, many intelligent colleagues, overtime is only expected during a disaster.

ConsOvertime (12 hr days, 7 days a week) is expected during disasters, many unintelligent colleagues that seem to get promotions rather than demotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementNever be afraid to write a bad performance review. If someone isn't doing their job, yet that is never reflected in their review, it hurts us all when that person is promoted.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
