Research Associate (Current Employee) – Research Triangle Park, NC – May 18, 2017
Work at the EPA really depends upon your PI. My experience was quite hectic and frankly, a pain. My lab work was not bad but my PI was constantly changing things, that did not make sense scientifically and made you redo things over and over because they could not make their mind up. Usually this would not bother me but the PI gave all of the lab members so much work to do, there was never enough time to finish anything completely.
Attorney (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 4, 2017
It's all around a great place to work. For new people there isn't a lot of training, due to budget cuts; and every year your budget may or may not be cut, which inhibits management's ability to plan for advancing employees. Because of the fluctuation younger people will likely come and leave.
