I have been working at Maricopa Association of Governments full-time
The culture is work-focused, there are few egos, and people are very "C" on the DISC analysis. It's more fast-paced than typical governmental jobs and the environment is very professional. There are many opportunities for upward mobility and the turnover rate is really low.
All decision are political ones, and it can be challenging to do worthwhile work when you constantly have to think about how clients will react. This is probably the same in any kind of government work. The culture is a little uptight.
