    Pros

    A noteworthy organization with a long history of preserving and maintain open space and natural resources.

    Cons

    No more than any other similar organization. Limited career opportunities in some positions.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the career ladders of other public organizations and notice the various steps. Consider staff retention as a principle goal.

  2. A medley of professionalism and high school 2.0 nonsense

    Pros

    The lifeguard pay is one of the highest paying high school wage and includes yearly COLA. Unionized and Organized, EBRPD pays meticulous attention to detail when it comes to employee paid trainings and patron satisfaction in its public parks.

    Cons

    The juvenile politics of the conflicted aquatics management are unnecessary and tarnish EBRPD's image as a whole. Hypocrisy and favoritism run rampant, particularly in the south where physical appearance is deemed an indicator of competence (namely that bulk = skill). Opportunity for advancement is based on ambiguous or non-adhered to factors.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of aquatics management. Get a better pulse on your seasonal employees, it'll avoid the unpleasant situations you run into on a yearly basis with respect to... well... college party-related activities. Do exit interviews so you can learn from where to improve (you already do entry + interviews).
