Excellent Support and diverse career opportunities
Navigation Officer, (Current Employee), ENGMarch 24, 2015
Pros: I manage my own time
Cons: Working on standby on a saturday night
The environment Agency provides excellent support to its employees to further their career development. There are also many benefits to the job ranging from a generous pension scheme to money off eye care. As an employee I feel well looked after knowing the coaching service and sick leave is there if I need it. At 11,000 strong the EA offers a wide range of positions, and progression is very much encouraged. To function best as an organisation the EA offers up to three days per year to spend time with other departments gaining an understanding of what they do to help us work together as one unit. This is a fantastic example of how the EA encourages staff progression and organisation effectiveness at the same time.
A typical day at work involves undertaking multiple practicable jobs to maintain our sites, liaising with he public on all river concerns, and continued training on managing river levels.
Staff are friendly and reliable.

Excellent place to work with great underpaid and undervalued staff.
WASTE REGULATORYSPECIALIST (Former Employee), Newcastle upon Tyne, ENGMarch 27, 2014
Pros: great welfare culture, good social scene. excellent working conditions.
Cons: poor financial rewards, undervalued staff.
The Environment Agency carries out a number of functions to safeguard the environment in which we live. The staff work very hard in very difficult commercial, cultural and personal conditions. However most employees come to work with a smile and a great attitude in adversity. The support regimes in place are second to none. However the value of the EA is being eroded by inaccurate publicity and Government ineptitude.
