Pros

If you are one of the chosen ones, you get flexible working hrs. Pay and conditions can be good for some.

Cons

Extremley entrenched burocracy. Management uses the state employee support program to punish employees that speak out. Orgnaization is in constantly state of reorg. Directors come and go, and have no power over middle managers that have carved out silos of power over decades. Those that work get more work, those that don't work don't work. The place is a mess. Pay is low and stagnent. No advancement unless you are a "yes" man. Protect the environment... I don't think so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave already - so that more motivated and educated communicators can run the organization. This organization should be absorbed into the Water Board or completley disbanded in order to save tax payers money

    Pros

    Good work-life balance
    Some friendly coworkers
    Steady job that is very connected to environmental consulting companies

    Cons

    Low morale in the company
    Not many growth opportunities within the organization
    Most people in the organization 50+
    I felt unequipped to talk to environmental consultants and customers with years and years of corporate experience. Frankly, the environmental sector of the government is very backwards in its understanding new methods/technologies in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less office politics
    More support for teams
