    Very hardworking and dedicated staff. Committed to their role in a participatory democracy.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsVery smart group of people dedicated to the idea that we do live in a democracy and that their role is to facilitate the goals of the public in the S. Calif area.

    ConsOnly complaint - I sometimes found the process of obtaining goods and services the agency needed from outside vendors unnecessarily difficult. But it is rough working within a government agency - they are under a microscope and are aware of that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEach vendor bidding on projects as low as 6 hours of work needs to do a substantial amount of legal research in order to know the rules they must follow. Do that research for them so they do not all have to do it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Internship

    Research and Analysis Intern (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsFriendly and well-paced working environment, satisfaction of feeling your work directly related to the regional development and each individual's life. You can also know a lot of experts, engineers, and planners from governments, private consulting firm, and institutes for conference and meeting at SCAG.

    ConsRelatively rigid structure (less turnover) and the promotion is a combination of your ability and year you have been working (even if you are super capable). Some other workers from departments other than Environmental and Land Use Planning might not that nice.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people to work with if you like government work

    Senior Regional Planner (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGreat people to work with, good benefits for a government agency, extensive exposure to regional and local planners from other government agencies and consulting firms

    ConsTop-heavy political organization with limited room to think independently (your ideas may be heard but are often drowned out by external influences), lack of a sense of satisfaction that the work you do influences anything other than the agency's image to its closest stakeholder agencies

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
