Great volunteer network!

A fun way to spend time and help nature. Light-duty jobs available and labor intensive jobs - something for everyone! Wonderful people with massive amounts of knowledge. It's like a family or close community - everyone cares about each other.
Pros
You choose schedule - volunteer, great people

Department not safe for ethical minorities
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
Cons
Poor management and no protection
