Pros : Starting a career at Environment Agency is very exciting because of the multiple training courses and options available. Employees are entrusted with fun projects and are never micro-managed. On top of this, you can choose your working hours should you wish to.
Cons: Considering that this is a government institution, it is quite to be expected that the salary wouldn’t be that high. It still is a bit of a disappointment though. There are also some senior staff members who treat junior staff badly, but these are isolated cases.
Unusual thing: Sometimes there is a lack of productivity that is not dealt with appropriately by management.
“A very average company to work for”
Those who are into the environmental aspect of jobs, will be OK working here. The work is fairly simple to do. All of the experts here have no problem freely sharing their knowledge.
The salaries are terrible. Can hardly support your family with the peanuts on offer. There is no room to grow because the older generation of workers refuse to budge. The whole company seems to be stagnating at the moment because there is no new technologies being used and no innovations being discovered. Right now its all very mellow and quite boring.
Unusual thing: Most of the employees are middle-aged.
We are the Environment Agency. We are the biggest and most wide-ranging environmental regulator in Europe. We work with businesses and communities to protect and improve the environment, for people and wildlife. And the need for our work is becoming ever more important. We protect and improve the environment across England to: • reduce the risks to people and properties from flooding • help businesses and communities adapt to climate change • reduce pressures on biodiversity • help businesses to make sure they don’t harm the environment through pollution or taking too much water • issue licences and permits, and take action against people who don’t take their environmental responsibilities seriously. None of this is possible without a multi-talented team of professional and dedicated people. And just like the environment we help to care for, we’re home to an incredible diversity of skills and knowledge. Today, we employ more than 12,000 people throughout England in a wide range of roles. You’ll find leading scientists and prominent geologists alongside public relations professionals, planners and policy advisors. We employ lawyers, enforcement officers and engineers, conservation scientists and marine biologists. And of course we have a wide team of support staff. We employ people at all stages of their career, from recent graduates to experienced leaders and internationally-renowned experts.
