    I have been working at Denver Water

    Pros

    Decent working environment, supportive of continuing education, people are generally nice and good to work with.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement, many long-term employees (20 -30 years +) creates a "good old boy" network that you can't really break into. This leads to some favoritism in job placement, tolerating incompetence, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are on the right track in terms of trying to change how IT functions, but there is a lot of inertia for the old ways hanging around. If you don't keep a close eye on this, your brightest employees will leave you.

    I worked at Denver Water

    Pros

    This place seems like it has good work life balance. In my particular position you are expected to put in exactly 40 hours - no more and no less.

    Good benefits once you get a full time position.

    A lot of great people work at Denver Water. My boss was great though I had heard mixed reviews about others.

    Most people have been there forever because it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Biggest con is Denver Water needs to do better acquiring new young talent. The intern technicians get to do some cool stuff and the intern bosses are great.

    Problem is the interns generally don't get hired full time after their internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring so many outside people and give some of the high performing interns full time offers, especially if they have worked multiple summers for Denver Water.
