    Pros

    Committed group of exciting, challenging, educated, talented coworkers who despite all obstacles continue to keep the publics treasures open to all. There is an opportunity to work with, visit, and explore a world of historic sites with personal connection to each. Fellow workers always make time to be of assistance and cooperate to achieve positive results. There is a culture of individual control of time, activities, education, and direction. Results are rewarded with commendations and certificates.

    Cons

    No clear systems in place for continued advancement in some areas divisions. Management and the Department are struggling with too much to accomplish without enough financial resources. The back log of defered maintenance is in the multi millions and may never be accomplished leaving resources over time unusable.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve and discuss advancement strategies with employees.

    Pros

    Mission. People. Once you become part of the family, you can never get out... even if you try.

    Who doesn't like the National Parks?

    Cons

    If you are a thought leader, expect resistance from the entrenched old timers. The culture of the organization resists change, and that is likely for good reason being that they employ people in the business of preservation...

    Advice to Management

    Realize who is pulling the cart up the hill, who is sitting in the cart weighing it down, and who is doing nothing more than blocking it from making any progress at all. Give the pullers incentive, the sitters a reason to pull, and remove the blockers.
