    I have been working at Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, some flexibility with work life balance but often meaningless restrictions on time that negatively impact personal life.

    Cons

    Compensation. working conditions. management, lack of mobility, micromanagement. Supervisors spend much of their time checking the page long daily activity log sometimes broken into five minute increments. Total wast of time. Taxpayer dollars wasted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust employees to do their job, stop justifying positions with micromanagement. Allow supervisors to spend more time coaching employees instead of checking boxes. Advocate for your staff, make them feel you are on their side.

    Pros

    This agency believes in promoting from within as long as employees are hardworking and take initiative. The agency has various areas that it regulates and provide enforcement for, therefore there are multiple opportunities and areas in which to work and gain experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes promotional opportunities are eliminated by restructuring or budget issues, and there is no mentor/mentee program established to assist people in seeking promotional opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a mentor/mentee program established in order to assist employees in their attempts to promote up and avail themselves of promotional opportunities.

    Pros

    The DBPR is a great place to work for those that enjoy working 9-5 with no added stress after the work day is over. Great Benefits. Coworkers are very friendly and helpful. Willing to adjust your work schedule so that it is best suited towards a family work environment.

    Cons

    Communication is not clear when to comes to management. There is no real form of advancement within the company unless you are great at brown nosing. Basically if you want to do a lot of paper pushing then this is the position for you.
