"A very politically motivated workplace. The old boys network rules all, and innovation that allows for the job to be accomplished efficiently is stifled by bureaucracy. The money is OK, but expect to travel 95% of the time and be treated like a replaceable part by an underqualified supervisor."

"Leadership was not the best. It seemed as though there wasn’t any organization and communication was poor. Overall, the job was ok, but I felt as though with better communication things would have gone much smoother"

Logistics Systems Manager
in Washington, DC

"Good place to work but very military oriented which is a downfall. I think FEMA is designed to transition folks from the military to a civilian position which reduces the amount of US citizens to get a job with them. Another downfall is being deployed 30 days at a time which is very hard with having a family and being gone all the time."
