Advice to Management

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Pleasanton, CA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Supportive environment, necessary resources available if deemed a worthy project, family oriented, totally beats commuting to south bay or silicon valley.

    Cons

    Can be a bit micro-managed on an individual level, what should be clear mandates set limits that apply to all citizen is often bent when "the squeaky wheel" tactic is employed, then weaker-willed management will kowtow to a complainer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Every organization has the occasional bad apple, at all levels. Just try to be more consistent in the face of political pressure from unreasonable citizens and leaders with their own agendas.
