I worked at National Park Service as an intern (more than a year)

Pros

In my experience, the best part of the NPS is the people. I have had two different jobs with them, and in both cases, I had great relationships with the people i worked with.

Cons

The major downside of the NPS is that the pay is generally less than you'd like. However, most people don't go to the NPS because they are drawn to the high salaries.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Much of the upper management seems to get caught up in the bureaucracy and forgets the purpose of the NPS. Also, geology is extremely under-emphasized at the parks compared to wildlife, forestry, etc.
