    I have been working at Metropolitan Water District of Southern California full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, probably the best compare to all the agencies out there. People are friendly and professional. Will get returned call the same day from your associates. The people actually care about their jobs and gives heart in what they do. The company culture is relaxed and fun, but professional at the same time. Because it's one of the best agencies, the selection process is extremely difficult, so only the best people get hired. You are working with experienced, highly qualified individuals. Feels like a private company but has the stability of a public agency. Every other friday off 9/80 schedule, 14 holiday, vacations, fully paid for insurance (HMO and PPO), 401k company match and pension!

    Cons

    It's very difficult to get a job here because every job posting has over 300 applicates, so it might take awhile till you get in. But once you get in the rewards are tremendous. There are deadweights employees that linger from long time ago that really do nothing but cannot be fire because of the union. But overall everyone does their job well. Promotion wil take awhile, because it's not that many promotion opportunities come up. That's changing since half the agency is now retirement age and there will be high turnover in next couple years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the younger generation and new people options for telecommuting, and alternative schedules, since many of us have families now, the strict 9/80 across the board schedule is very hard on us.
