Neutral Outlook

I worked at Arizona Department of Water Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

A good place to work. Professional staff, promotion opportunities, good management. Plenty of opportunities to expand skills and learn new things. Customers are great to work with.

Cons

Budget cuts reduced the staff to a skeleton crew and closed outlying offices. I would still be working there if not for the cuts.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing. Consider hiring back staff as the budget allows. Keep in touch with what the lower level staff is doing. Offer more training opportunities.
