    I have been working at Florida Department of Environmental Protection full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In this position I have gained great experience, received training to further my career and been able to network with other partner agencies.

    Cons

    As an OPS employee on and hourly wage I do not qualify for all benefits even though I work full time (40hrs). If I weren't OPS I could qualify for tuition waivers to help pay for my graduate school.

    I have been working at Florida Department of Environmental Protection full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good insurance and leave policies. Can't think of any other pros to be included for the 20 word minimum requirement here.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible, overall work environment is horrible, seems to have an unusually large employee turnover rate for good reason.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, plenty of annual leave, sick leave, insurance is pretty good. Some divisions are much better to work for than others.

    Cons

    Management changes with changes in Florida's administration, so be prepared for paradigm shifts about every 4 years. Sometimes that can be very frustrating.
