I worked at US Bureau of Land Management (Less than a year)
Paid to hike, record, and monitor archaeological sites located within federal project areas. Little desk work in the summer time, depending upon location. Amazingly beautiful country. Sick leave and annual leave carry over contract year to contract year. You make more money as a contingent employee with the BLM than most other cultural resource management jobs.
No health/sick insurance. Can be challenging to accommodate family life. If you are hired on contract don't expect to get transition to permanent status unless you have a social/personal 'in' with management. Everyone hates archaeologists and thinks your job is either a hobby or a joke. If you work in a conservative rural community (that exists because of federal land management agencies), the public (ironically) hates the feds and you because you work for them. Little do they know, you are a mere pawn. Cultural resource laws are not respected by management. Permanent archaeologists employed by the BLM are respected at the same level as the cultural resources, which is to say not at all.
Advice to Management
Honor extant federal legislation, NEPA and NHPA in word and deed.
