Good cause corporate culture
Stewardship Technician (Current Employee) – Ventura, CA 93001 – February 22, 2017
My typical day at work consists of dealing with the day-to-day operations of 7 leases on farms across Ventura County. Other days I contend with trespass and vandalism issues across 3,500 acres of riverine, foothill and coastal wetland habitat.
I learned about contract management and negotiation, managing property records and taxes through an on-line work enterprise cloud computing program called Salesforce. It's an office heavy job requiring time management, constant communication, managing deadlines and constantly putting out fires.
The hardest part of the job is being in confrontational situations where you have to talk to people who are trespassing on private property and aren't the nicest people usually.
Workplace culture is very ambitious, corporate and not very diverse; not very much recognition is handed out.
The most enjoyable part of the job is sometimes working with volunteers and kids in school groups outside.
Great health care benefits, 401K, great mission
Not diverse, management can be improved, not much upward mobility
