Doesn't Recommend

Pros

-Work life balance
-Challenge of assignment
- Freedom to express yourselves (wearing whatever you like to work)
- Great boss

Cons

98% of people working in my department were white approaching the retirement age
These people seem to have a very limited view about minority and it showed.
Rumors going around were that some of us (minority) got the jobs because of affirmative action and such. It's 2010 and we still have to "put up or shut up". Go figure!

Advice to Management

Management don't have to give any special treatments to the non-white population. However, more works have to be done to bring some of the folks here to the 21st century.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Oregon Department of Transportation as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with public, great conversations, feel community oriented.

    Cons

    Manager makes or breaks position, low pay, union.

    Advice to Management

    1 Manager amazing, other manager awful. How can that exist? Union. They may have already fulfilled the original idea of union organization, at this point they are keeping old guard going at any cost. Cost = your future.
