Great Benefits/Understaffed Management
Contractor USDA-NRCS (Former Employee) – Mississippi – April 10, 2018
I was a Contractor for a USDA-NRCS office. My coworkers were like one big family. Lots of planned and unplanned potlucks.
There are umpteen opportunities to learn and teach yourself about the USDA and NRCS programs and overall.
There is travel involved, from 15 miles to 200 miles from your home office.
LUSA has only two people in Management, the President and Vice President. Compared to the number of employees, management is grossly understaffed. They are unable to properly handle or even address any issues or concerns in a timely manner, if at all.
USDA, specifically the NRCS department is a great agency to work in. LUSA has secured awesome government contracts with great benefits (health, dental, vision, 401K & life insurance). Top management is unable to provide or handle employee concerns.
Great Benefits, Great Client-USDA, No weekends
Understaffed Management, short breaks
