    I worked at Arizona Department of Water Resources full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The department provides a flexible work schedule, numerous paid holidays, and an opportunity to save money through a deferred compensation plan.

    Cons

    ADWR is a failed organization that has abandoned the goals of the Arizona Groundwater Management Act, and has failed after 30 years to make any progress on the statewide surface water adjudication. Almost all of the scientific and engineering professionals left the agency years ago, and the remaining staff has little technical expertise. Senior management cannot comprehend complex scientific analysis, and marginalizes employees with actual expertise in the field. The agency has virtually no respect within the water community due to its simplistic and ineffective approaches to water management issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconstitute the department as a technical agency. Replace the current management with a professional engineering staff headed by a state engineer. Eliminate most of the water resources specialist positions and contract this work out to the private sector.
