    I have been working at Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture, at least in the Bureau I work in,is great. The people are friendly, everyone pulls together and works as a team, and it truly is like a family.

    Cons

    The pay is less than stellar. We are usually short handed so you end up taking on extra responsibility and there's not a lot of training. Also, there seems to be alack of communication between management and everyone else. The turn over, at least amongst the lab techs, is pretty high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to pay people more so they will stay longer. Communicate better and find ways to train people better and more quickly.
