Summary

Getting a job in ecology can be tough, but NEON arguably has been hiring more ecologists than anyplace else: Earlier this year its workforce topped some 400 permanent and 100 summer employees. But NEON's disarray has led to high turnover and taken a toll on promising careers. The turnover has also robbed NEON of talent that could help it overcome future challenges.
