    I have been working at California Dtsc full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are one of the chosen ones, you get flexible working hrs. Pay and conditions can be good for some.

    Cons

    Extremley entrenched burocracy. Management uses the state employee support program to punish employees that speak out. Orgnaization is in constantly state of reorg. Directors come and go, and have no power over middle managers that have carved out silos of power over decades. Those that work get more work, those that don't work don't work. The place is a mess. Pay is low and stagnent. No advancement unless you are a "yes" man. Protect the environment... I don't think so.

    Advice to Management

    Leave already - so that more motivated and educated communicators can run the organization. This organization should be absorbed into the Water Board or completley disbanded in order to save tax payers money
