Pros

stability in (energy) regulated business. Friendly work environment. Lots of volunteer opportunities. Benefits are ok. People who had opportunity of having a pension plan is working good.

Cons

Work flexibility/Telecommute option is not there in many areas where it is possible considering the envionment goals.It is not unusual to see people will lower qualification get promotion or higher pay. Having a higher education/licenses/more experience doesn't mean much. A project manager with no good education or knowledge has more chances wo beat you. HR is no different that

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to look into cross function area or departments. Lot of descripancies in how much people work and get paid.

    The state agency mission is laudable; but the slow pace is not for everyone

    Pros

    The people are the assets and the liabilities of LCRA. Putting in a fair amount of initiative can make you appear as a high achiever. Very hard to fire people, so in a way there is a high level of job security. The majority of my peers are good, nice people who fit well working for a state agency like LCRA. The family analogy is used frequently, I would agree (although there is clearly good and bad things about running a state agency like a family owned business.

    Cons

    The entitlement attitude of the employees is LCRA's achille's heel. Average tenure of an employee seems to be well over 10 years; thus there is a huge amount of inertia to get anything done within a reasonable time. Time is something LCRA has plenty of, so there is no hurry to do anything efficiently. If you've worked in the private sector, then moving to LCRA should make you pause; don't be fooled, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...it's a duck. LCRA is a state agency with all of its quirky employees who couldn't survive in the private sector and have a home serving the mission of LCRA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although change can occur in any direction (top down; bottom up), LCRA is starving for mid management leadership.
