    I have been working at ACE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You meet some wonderful, unique people and get to work in very beautiful areas. You may even learn a thing or two about conservation.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, housing is dangerous if you have anything valuable, and the full time employees never seem to know what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more useful hierarchy of management to keep each level responsible. There seems to be too many people at the same level which leads to confusion in who to ask for things as a corps member.

    I worked at ACE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You meet some pretty amazing people along the way.

    Cons

    ACE and the PCTA treat crew members like cattle. They seem to forget people are volunteering their time for 200 dollars every two weeks. They promote themselves as selfless environmentalists. The truth is it's all about the money for them.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. Appreciate their time and effort.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Lots of room for advancement. A lot of good people to work with and collaborate with. Secure employment if you're in a big city.

    Cons

    Care more about the business than the peeps

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your lower managers pick favorites. It's bad for everyone.

    Pros

    GO work for an organization that cares about you. SIgned up for the PCT 2016 crew and it was a miserable experience. The main goal of the PCT crew is to milk every drop of sweat they can out of you at the lowest possible price. You will be worked to the bone and it is not worth it. If you want to pursue a career in trail work this would help you do that, or sign up for the normal program and that would do the same and be a much more enjoyable experience.

    Cons

    The PCT crew receives half the pay that normal 900 hr ace CA members receive but works significantly more hours. You will be placed in the deep south of CA in the hot desert. You will not be backcountry camping or anywhere cool on the trail you will be rebuilding the destroyed sections. Do the normal 900 program if you have to but stay away from this.

    Advice to Management

    Don't screw people over financially. Actually tell them stuff. Like where they are gonna be working or if you are going to send them into 100F worksites or windfarms.

    Pay is decent for starting out to pay bills.

    This review seems like it was meant for ACE - Hardware. The American Conservation Experience is a youth-geared personal and professional development program.

    I worked at ACE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    adventurous position, lots of learning and being challenged, interesting people

    Cons

    too many employees for a small office staff made me feel like a number

    Advice to Management

    treat employees who work for free/very low pay as if you were paying them 100k+
