    I worked at Central Contra Costa Sanitary District (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The senior really gives you low priority engineering projects to work on, unlike some companies just give you busywork.

    Cons

    It seems very hard to land a full time job with them even though you have great achievement with them.

    Advice to Management

    The lunch room for the engineers is too small.
