Was a contractor for CDC. Work hours was typical Monday to Friday with great hours. There are lots of training so you learn a lots. The management really do care about progress and have the tools to allow you to succeed. Co workers were nice and worked well.

The work is basic to public health and government. Good work environment as it would be at any other company however does encourage a healthy lifestyle. When looking at the company make sure you understand the benefits package including the health insurance it is not the best. Once you are on a particular contract and you see they have won a new contract or have an opening on another contract that interest you they will not move you even if you are well qualified, thus NO room for advancement at your pace. Only time they will move you is when the contract is over, which is good because you still have a job however you will not receive the professional development you desire at your pace. If the client does not like you they do not move you to another contract, they just fire you.
