    I have been working at Metropolitan Water District of Southern California full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly and helpful colleagues, non-competitive work environment, get to work on big projects that make a big difference, meaningful and fulfilling work bringing water to 19 million people in Southern CA, get to go out the the field to see the projects and interact with operations staff

    Cons

    Slow to change and adopt new or better processes and equipment because need to be conservative for reliability, big gap between experienced people about to retire and new college graduates, loss of technical expertise in a breath of areas due to current hiring of many entry level staff. We need more mid-level staff.

    I have been working at Metropolitan Water District of Southern California for less than a year

    Pros

    Number #1 is pays well. I'm currently on a 6 month contract with the company. I say that I enjoyed working would be an understatement. I work in the fleet department assisting with various tasks and odd jobs. I am there to let the staff focus on their work and to ease their work load. General administrative tasks, ie: word processing, copying, filing etc. My main duties are to distribute the daily mail. It's a lot... at times. Sort by hand, then hop in a cart and distribute throughout the whole facility. The process takes 20-30 minutes give or take. As a temp, I did take on some odd tasks. Basically, everything they didn't want to do or had time for, I had to take on. It wasn't so bad. It's a government/city job. I am currently going to test for an a position that just opened up. Once an employee, you're practically made here, of course if you're a good worker. Excellent pay, benefits, 401k...the works. Highly recommeded!

    That I'm on contract. Other than that...nothing.
