The Forest Preserve Department was a very exciting place to work especially if you enjoyed outdoor activities. You dealt with Forest preserve groves, golf course, pools, multiple facilities, etc.

Professional (Current Employee) –  Cook County, ILDecember 2, 2018
Resource Management department has seen a sharp decline in persons of color compared to 15 years ago, some asked to be transferred, some wound up drowned after doing so. Do not make a protected complaint because you are not really protected
Pros
Good benefits

Poor management and no protection
