I have been working at LA County Department of Public Works full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

great salary. pays overtime. work mon - thur 10 hours a day, so we have 3 day weekends every weekend. Opportunity for rotation to learn a little from different divisons

Cons

Boring and not challenging. You don't really do any engineering work. When it comes time for the PE exam, you forget mostly everything you learned in college.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open for ideas. Do not overwork your employees.
