    I worked at Metropolitan Water District of Southern California

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits, retirement, Time Off. You are part of an organization that sells water in a desert.Pretty secure.

    Cons

    10 years behind the times, too much employee dead weight, Middle Management are a cartel of scared people who piss on those below and kiss everyone above, they don't know what they are doing, just keep the status quo.

    Advice to Management

    Cut salaries by 10 percent to get a large group to retire. Test people in different skill levels. You have too many managers, empower the people in the rank and file.
