Your day at work will generally be office-oriented, but being able to work long days in the field is a must. Friendly staff, excellent field pay. Use ArcGIS and in-house applications to complete work tasks. I found that the workplace culture is quite clicky, and hard to break into as most of the employees have worked with each other in the past at different companies. They have a wealth of knowledge and help is not too far away. Management is considerate of your needs and will work with you to see that they are met.
