When properly backed by management, you can make a direct impact on improving air pollution on the local level. The BAAQMD has the best benefits and pay around (employer-provided pension payment).

The agency is the typical beuracratic government agency with internal office politics for who will be promoted, although promotion is largely based on seniority, long lag times for any action, and frequent inactivity due to second-guessing.
