    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Working at the National Park Service has been an enjoyable experience. Employees are passionate about what they do. Great people to work with and for.

    Cons

    With the National Park Service being a government agency, the workplace can be more strict that other companies. It can be difficult to get a foot in the door with the regulations regarding the hiring process and who you have to compete with.

    If you want an easy job and don't care about workplace satisfaction, sign up. If you have goals, stay away.

    Pros

    Nice community, working outside a plus. Benefits are okay but the whole federal benefits thing is overrated.

    Cons

    too much red tape. The ignorant get promoted. Doing a good job is career suicide. You get jerked around a lot if you're a temp hoping for full time. Prepare to hear lots of excuses. Sexist and racist, overtly so, without any real way to complain. Being outside and being able to run away from management is the only thing that makes this toerlate.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think anything can be done because these problems are so engrained in the system.
