    I have been working at North Central Texas Coucil of Governments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a good benefits plan, and the work is fairly creative and flexible. Depending on the supervisor, you will have a fair amount of leeway in designing your work. If you have an analytical mind, the opportunities are endless. I haven't personally felt micromanaged.

    Cons

    The cons are typical of government work. Many times, priorities change, forcing you to re-do work, or stop working on a project altogether. There is always the possibility that decision makers will not take your advice. It can be hard to feel like you make a difference, and most things operate very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a buffer between those starting out as Planner I and the senior management. Try to keep a positive outlook for those at the bottom, and make them feel as thought they make a difference, or they will lose confidence and leave.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at North Central Texas Coucil of Governments (Arlington, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was called about a week after I applied online. Interview was set for 3 weeks out. I interviewed with 3 employees at once in the department. Interview went really well I thought. They seemed to like me and even said I did well interviewing. They said they would let me know in 2-3 weeks. After 1 week, I sent a follow up email thanking them for the interview and got no response. After 3 weeks (since the interview) i called and left a message - no response. Never heard back from anyone. Given that I took the time to interview, I would have appreciated a call or email saying I didn't get the job so that I wasn't waiting.
