Pros

Opportunity to use technical training to protect human health and the environment and make a difference. Great place to learn how to implement the law, from a technical perspective. Work load is reasonable with little overtime, making it a good place for young parents to start their career. There are many good professionals and areas to work in.

Cons

Bureacracy and politics (internal and external) interfers with technical decisions. Top-down management style. The good old boy network is alive and well. Promotions are not made upon merit but upon friendship and who will not question senior management.

Advice to Management

Communication needs to go both ways. Decisions should be made based upon the law and the advice of your technical staff - both what you want to hear and what you don't. Staff opinions should not be censored by management. Decision makers need to hear all sides, not just the predetermined answer.
