Varied Experience based on location
Written by Soil Conservation Technician (Former Employee) from Danville, IL on May 11, 2018
NRCS is a great place to work at, however location and front line management can often make or break one's experience with the agency. The overall goals of the agency are customer focused and helping producers with their resource concerns. There can be a lot of paperwork and research needed to achieve the goals, but that is a part of any job.

steady pay, good benefits
Cons
lack of advancement options
