A great job with the Federal Government
Desktop Technical Support (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAJune 29, 2014
Pros: work with some of the smartest people in the world
Cons: it is hard to move from contractor status to fte (full employee)
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been in Atlanta since the 1940's. It is a global health center that can have a person working with people in remote areas with disease outbreaks or a local statistician who needs help with a 40,000 record database to track epidemics in the USA.

I have learned to work with people with multiple PhD's and those – more... with a GED to create a powerful work environment that creates a culture of suceess with a no problem attitude.

The hardest part of the job is the best part. Working with the people who can make this a healthier world to live in. – less

great experience
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee), Tampa, FLMay 20, 2014
Pros: free lunch, worked with children that loved me
Cons: no benefits, minimum wage
Going into working at a daycare, I had no experience whatsoever. Play N Learn CDC taught me a lot about children and showed me how great of a parent I'll be someday. I truly cared for those children like they were my own. Play N Learn CDC was a big family. My manager was excellent and my co workers were very welcoming. The hardest part of the job was – more... realizing that those kids were like sponges and were watching me every step of the way, so if I messed up, they could recognize it. The best part of my job was walking into work in the morning and all the kids running to the door screaming "Ms. Angie, Ms. Angie!" – less

Mail Clerk Assistant Lead (Former Employee), Hyattsville, MDApril 17, 2014
Pros: loved the freedom
Cons: no benefit package
A typical day at CDC was a good day. The work was not hard what so ever, I literally delivered packages all day long and managed the mail room. I really can't think of one bad thing about this job except that there was no benefits included, and that includes sick leave and vacation leave.

Productive building small business professionals
Consultant (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJanuary 29, 2014
My specialization is in economic development, market analysis, and business districts, so the projects I do tend to have less need for community interaction than, say, a comprehensive plan or neighborhood plan. I may travel two or three times to the client during the project, which may take from four to eight months to complete. Each trip is anywhere – more... from three to six days. I will often extend a trip by a day or two to take in some of the nearby attractions.
There was a lot of interaction between the public sector and consultants, and being able to understand how both think is an excellent ability that isn't taught in college.

I really enjoy people and building vision..... – less
