A challenging and rewarding place to work

Former Employee - Public Information Officer in Washington, DC
Former Employee - Public Information Officer in Washington, DC

I worked at FEMA part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you like making a difference in in the life of someone who has been through a tragedy then FEMA may be the place for you to work.

Cons

If you don't like to travel then it may not be the job for you. Also, while on a disaster site you work long hour often seven days a week. The upside is that you are paid for every hour you work.

Advice to Management

The biggest problem I saw with management is that they often utilize people for their weaknesses and not their strengths.

    Pros

    Very good compensation and benefits (maybe a little too much actually)

    Cons

    Management is filled with smart people who know nothing about managing/leading PEOPLE.

    Advice to Management

    Some basic social skills and leadership training would greatly help.

    Pros

    where do i start...its a great agency to work for.. you get to meet so many different people from all over the nation not to mention how great they are. you get to help people who need the help and its always a good feeling to help. not too many people on your back about things. if you do what your supposed to nobody bothers. the pay is good. overall its a great experience

    Cons

    too much micromanaging, the pay could be a bit better, the hours are verrrrryyyyy lonnggg and work 6-7 days a week. not a stable job whatsoever. its mostly all temporary jobs so your not guaranteed you will work for long, also no stable positions, they say you'll be working in one department and next week last minute without you knowing they will switch you off.

    Advice to Management

    be straight up and tell the employess how you feel or what they are doing wrong, dont go micro managing its annoying,.also theres no room for growth ...and no benefits unless u work for CORE..
