Pros

Good opportunities to try out temporary and seasonal work before accepting long-term employment. Great on-the-job training and information. Friendly coworkers in a like-minded environment.

Cons

Virtually no availability of permanent or long-term positions, even for people with experience. This has been a prevalent problem of federal government work in recent years.

Advice to Management

Overall, I feel US FWS hires competent and capable managers. They are great at providing guidance. Maintaining open communication and job detail is key.

    Pros

    They provided me with opportunities to work with other organizations and within different departments to increase my experience. I was allowed to take all of the training opportunities I asked about.

    Cons

    You work for the government, so there is a lot of red tape. Once you get used to it, it is fine.
