Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

I worked at National Parks Conservation Association

Pros

Truly wonderful people who care about National Parks.

Cons

Not there long enough to see a con.

Former Employee - Biological Science Technician

I worked at National Park Service full-time for more than a year

Pros

Can't say enough. Working for the Park Service in the Natural Resources division is amazing. You get to spend your work weeks backpacking through wilderness to find elusive species of animals and... plants, collect measurements and other data, and generally just adventure. The work culture is fantastic as well, usually your co-workers become a sort of short-term family each season, since you spend so much time exploring remote forests and mountains together. For entry-level work in the natural resources field, you really can't find a better experience.

Cons

Less pay than you can get in the private sector, but that's to be expected in a public service position.
