    I have been working at SW Florida Water Management District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Careers at the District are special primarily due to amazing colleagues. You are surrounded by world class professionals who are all passionate about our mission and the important work we do.
    There is always a feeling of pride knowing that we are making a difference as part of our great organization.

    Cons

    There are several business processes that could be better streamlined to allow more efficiency across the entire organization.
    At times it seems not all levels of sections/teams share the same level of camaraderie and cohesion. This may be alleviated by a more unifying vision originating from executive leadership and on down the chain to keep all District employees continually engaged and focused.

    Advice to Management

    Continue improvements in communication that allows for better interaction and feedback to help managers more effectively keep employees on track to achieve goals and success.
    That said, improvement could be made on yearly review process to evaluate performance. Since most all employees are professionals and continually self manage, supervisors/managers could instead focus on each staff's unique strengths and provide better, position specific training to help realize full potential.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at SW Florida Water Management District (Brooksville, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview and one in person interview. Very long process. In person interview was conducted by a panel of three people. They take turns asking pre-screened questions and writing down your responses. You have about an hour and there was plenty of time for you to ask questions.
