Can be very rewarding but will also face typical government work politics and attitudes

I have been working at Los Angeles County Department of Public Health full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

When I'm collaborating with colleagues and agencies and connecting with the public and medical providers in a manner that effectively provides education and to protect the public in a timely manner, in other words to accomplish our mission of minimizing and controlling infectious disease, it is really rewarding!

Cons

People won't or can't step up to work outside of their official duties. The atmosphere is thick with an attitude of this is how it's been done so we're not going to do anything differently. It can feel stagnant and demoralizing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'd like management to be more positive, inclusive, and creative.
