Growth, salary, work life balance, and co workers
Until now there have been no significant cons
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southern California Association of Governments (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2016.
It took about 2-3 months for the whole process, from the time I submitted my resume online until I got the offer. Questions are fairly easy, mostly your previous experience and also your GIS skills. But depending on the job description, questions might change based on the requirement. Also, they were looking for interns to help with the GIS service, so they also asked about previous experience of working for local jurisdictions.
