    Pros

    Flex day, OCEA Union, Variety of Medical Benefits.

    Cons

    Agency operate separately. Depending the agency you work for will determine your job satisfaction. Can not advance unless you apply for a new position, possibly outside your agency.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on rewards and recognition. Try to encourage job advancement (titles and incentives)

    Pros

    Flex schedule with 3-day weekends, health benefits, employer contributed retirement.

    Cons

    Very much a high school clique-like environment. Managers making over $40 hourly doing next to nothing every day but "go to meetings". Harassment of various types carried out almost daily. Direct supervisors made to re-submit an employees' performance review because although their performance was at least standard the individual has a personal issue with that employee so they would not sign off unless the review was less impartial.

    Advice to Management

    Come to terms with the fact that its a government entity not your own business. Lead with your head not your ego. If you need your staff to make you feel superior or feared get some professional help. And most importantly allow your staff to continue their education without taking it personal and trying to punish them. Moorlach is a bully and people are just too scared to say it.

    Pros

    A lot of vacation time, work life balance is great. Immediate supervisor is friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    Never see a face of upper management and totally no involvement with staff. Pay is decent and raises are slow.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needed to get more training to be more interactive and friendly. Less politic and more attention to staff.

    Pros

    None. If you enjoy being treated as slave, have no morals, enjoy politics, you will like working here.

    Cons

    Very hostile environment, expect to have 19 to 20 percent of pay to be taken out for retirement. Another 15 to 20% in other so called benefits. Always told to lie and keep quiet. Expect no raises and work 60+ hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Stay away from government. You can go better in commercial organization. Both in salary and benefits.
