Often stressful at times but overall a rewarding career with great benefits and good pay. Management could be better but coworkers are great and always willing to help.

Professional and mostly pleasant work environment. Like most Civil Service occupations the work is mostly expected with little to no recognition of a job well done. Fair chances for advancement.

The NYC Fire Department is a great place to work if you are a Firefighter. If you go to FDNY and go to a civilian position as a Fire Alarm Dispatcher be prepared that the instructors yell at you, they even tell you that they want to see fires. Who in their right mind wants to see people's properties burn up. I will tell anyone go see a psychiatrist if you want to be a FDNY Fire Alarm Dispatcher...

Working for the fire department is a good opportunity to help the public. I really enjoyed what I do. However having a family takes a toll on you, especially working long hours with kids under the age of 5. I'm just looking for a job where I can help people and spend quality time with my family.

I have no real comment about the fire department. The job overall was wonderful. The people and management however is a different story. There is a lot of cut throat activity that goes on.
