Fellowship Review
ORISE Fellow (Current Employee), Washington, DCDecember 22, 2014
A 4-year ORISE fellowship can be extremely beneficial for career experience. It allows you the flexibility to work for different managers and programs, and depending on your mentor, can provide you with experience directing projects and taking the lead on initiatives. My experience at EPA has been positive, but it can be difficult to work with management – more... at ORAU as their policies are continually changing and their directives are not consistent or clear. – less

New troubleshooting issues everyday
Acting Team Lead / Help Desk Technician (Current Employee), Washington, DCOctober 1, 2014
A typical day at work consist of working on all different types of tickets. Pretty much everyday day I learn something new just working the tickets. I get along with my co workers well. The hardest part of the job would be the lack of training when jumping into multiple specific company based applications.

I learned how to advocate for communities, support cultural diversity and traditional practices. I worked with a multi-faceted group of staff and managers. The hardest part of my job was sometimes having to say no. The most rewarding experience was empowering employees and community outreach activities.

Interesting way to learn about the EPA
Secretarial clerk (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMay 30, 2014
Pros: in the heart of the city
Cons: fashion has no connections with science/engineer graduates
As a fashion student, I had no immersive education about the sciences and engineering that go into protecting the environment. Working here was a great way to expand my knowledge in that field, as well as develop the personable skills that come along with a secretary job.

Imaging Technician (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHApril 17, 2014
Was very intrigued on how determined the EPA is with their duties and responsibilities. Also it was very interesting to learn about others involvement with society and the world, would not mind going back for another project for the EPA. Great people with such determination about their work, and was very supportive of any ideas or thoughts about what – more... they need to do about their IT issues. – less
