Pros

Good entry level job for the GIS field. Place to cut your teeth and rack up experience. Casual dress code, and people were generally friendly- Especially if you enjoy discussing football, fishing, and huntin' You got paid for overtime.

Cons

Can be extremely political. If you can't play nice with good ol' boys, you will never be promoted. There was a particular strand of southern culture, full of hidden landmines for outsiders- Work was feast or famine. Either you were working 50+ hours/week to meet deadlines, or bored and scared you'll be laid off. The men were huge gossips. Watch what you say until you understand who your real friends are.

Advice to Management

Nurture employee relationships. Significantly increase communication, between all departments, all projects, all people. You lost so much money because people wasted time fixing problems their neighbor already knew the solution to.
