Pros

- You will be exposed to some of the coolest infrastructure/bridge projects!
- Senior engineers are very willing to help you
- You room for promotions and educational reimbursements if you want to do the EIT/PE or such.

Cons

- As a government unit there are rules and procedures (which is OK as well)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Know your employees on a personal level which I experienced. Great job.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance & time off when you want/need it if you are rank and file employee. Most employees really are good, hardworking people.

    Cons

    Most management, if they do a good job, are worked like borrowed mules and if they don't do a good job...well, that's okay too. There is no supervisor/manager accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to promote someone to a supervisory or management level, make sure they supervise or manage their employees.
