Pros

Great people committed to their work. A fun, family-friendly work culture and environment. Excellent benefits and comp time policy. Casual dress code. All the perks of working for a natural resource, recreation and outdoors focused organization.

Cons

As is common with government, bureaucracy can be a huge challenge. Funding is determined by the legislature and lower than most state agencies. This impacts salary and opportunities for growth.

Advice to Management

Streamline mandated business polices and procedures. Listen to and empower the field and in working together with headquarters. Find ways to better generate revenue and self-fund programs and activities.

    Pros

    Great supervisors. Organizations is really big on family and have several events a year where your family can come and join you at work.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can take a while for a decision to be made. Often times once a decision is made it will be re-visited again and again.

    Advice to Management

    Select the right players to make the decisions and fully support them.

    Pros

    None, except nice physical atmosphere

    Cons

    The most extreme decriminalization against women I have ever seen in a work place.. Women are both expected to be afraid of men and be welcoming about sexual harassment. The only women that advance are the one that give in. One is expected to dress sexy.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your rednecks, hire up to date, educated people and stop the 1930s management style.
