    I have been working at Los Angeles full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    . The benefits and pay are the only reasons MOST stock with my department. The job itself is great and can be fun. Working independently and outdoors is a plus!!

    Cons

    Management has no clue of what's going on in the field. Opinions are asked and then ignored! Pilot programs instituted, if not discontinued will automatically become permanent. Most management personnel are self absorbed with they attitude if it's not my idea then it's not a great idea.

    I have been working at Los Angeles part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    No shortage of work; great professionals to work alongside.

    Cons

    Building is older and not well-maintained; Lots of basic office equipment works fairly decently but is shared by many employees; no pool vehicles--just reimbursement for mileage;and internal office phone system is antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    I'll keep it to myself since there are too many layers for anything to ever change and the squeaky wheel here gets replaced with the spare in the trunk.
