    Pros

    The people you support are patient and understanding. Great environment to work in. Basically, it pays the bills.

    Cons

    Management focuses too much on procedure and not on common sense which makes certain day to day tasks more difficult than they should be. Advancement and hiring process is based on favoritism and cronyism no matter how much they try make the interview process seem fair and impartial. They will hire one of their golf buddies over someone who actually is experienced and qualified to do the job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your experienced workers or veterans when making changes to a process or procedure. There is nothing like hands on experience, which the fresh out of college kids you praise too much, do not have.
