    I worked at Arkansas DEQ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    12 sick and 13 Vacation Days per year was really nice and they don't mind how and when you use them. The alternative work schedule was just getting started again when i left and it is cool as well. It's setup to where you have the choice of coming in an hour early and having every other Friday off. Dress code was relaxed there as well.

    Cons

    Benefits are pretty bad. Insurance is expensive and coverage is not that great. I started around the time ObamaCare was really taking off so apparently they used to be a little better but not much.
    No chance of raises but they do give out yearly bonus that is supposedly performance base but they never give anything above satisfactory.
    Work Environment can be stressful as well. Micromanagement is crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give people performance based bonus and then give everyone a satisfactory. Especially if the pay is that bad to begin with.

    I worked at Arkansas DEQ full-time

    Pros

    Time off, good training and training opportunities, stability, pleasant coworkers, location is great with a walking trail directly behind the buildling.

    Cons

    Not a very productive place to work, management can be hard to work with, revolving door of employees that leave, pay is not great.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get things done faster and work to retain your employees. Make you employees feel like they are more important than what you currently do.

    I have been working at Arkansas DEQ full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Decent holiday/vacation time off.
    -Work stays at work and you rarely work outside of business hours.

    Cons

    -Micromanaging is a HUGE problem. Managers are also quick to blame lower level employees for problems instead of taking responsibility for their shortcomings. They show no sincere appreciation for their subordinate's work either.
    -Wages are abysmal. Bonuses/raises are worse, almost insulting. If you haven't been here forever, don't expect to be treated well.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to HELP subordinates solve problems instead of quickly assigning them the blame. If they are failing, it is because YOU are failing them.

    Pros

    It ia a very flexible and laid back work environment. It is a great place to work if you have kids because of the flexibility and freedom.

    Cons

    Since the job is based on industry it is slow paced at times. There are high work loads and low work loads depending on the time year. Does not require a lot of engineering skills.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, and it is not encouraged to take work home.

    Cons

    Very much like high school- cliques are prevalent, and some seem to get to bend the rules while others do not. Bureaucratic procedures slow progress, and too much focus is placed on enforcement of technicalities instead of meaningful changes and assistance for the businesses of AR...
