it is pretty toxic, everyone is in everyone elses personal business. also as employees we are often in the dark about decisions and programs that directly affect us.
Support from management
it doesn't take much
it is encouraged verbally ...
Freedom to work independently
there are layers upon layers of supervision
many women work much higher than their skill level
Attitude towards older colleagues
lets old people do things that they are unable to do because of their age. places more weight on time of service than on skill or performance
very little advancement opportunity
Overall compensation for your work
i work way above my pay rate
Office / Work Environment
poor ergonomic design, outdated equipment
lip service and programs but little actual effective practices and policies
flexible schedules, great time off
i struggle working in the government, but the NRCS is at least trying to help people even if it isn't very efficient at it
usually government positions are ultra stable but i am not a "permanent" employee for bureaucratic reasons
no but physical nature of work doesn't allow for handicap employees
it is super easy
Inclusive / Diverse
gives lip service to diversity but in reality it is only ok to be diverse in approved ways
Suggestions for improvement
- encourage some of the seasoned employees to retire.
What I like about the company
I have a really good supervisor that recognizes exceptional performance so I have gotten pay raises ahead of schedule.
What I dislike about the company
being government, everything is a process. for example you cant just order supplies you have to find the supplies submit a request, which has to be approved by several supervisors, that request then goes to a business center in timbuktu or who knows where and someone there orders your supplies ... maybe. and everything is like that.
