    I worked at Lcra full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relatively large outfit with opportunity to advance and change career directions. The benefits are adequate to good, and the HQ offices are nice. They're located on Lake Austin and adjacent to the Hula Hut (restaurant on the water).

    Cons

    While most of the people are very friendly (mainly the older crowd that have been there for decades), there is a liberal bias amongst the staff. It seems as though hiring mgrs prefer people with that slant and hire accordingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing a liberal, politically correct agenda!

    I have been working at Lcra

    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.
