    Pros

    Working for a public agency that controls, monitors, and maintains OC's groundwater basin was one of the most amazing learning experiences I've had (I have four degrees, recently a MA in Geography). Typical working environment you find in a public agency.

    Cons

    Limited hours to max 25 hours per week.

    Pros

    You will get a descent amount of GIS experience and exposure to working at a public agency and a typical office environment; hours are very flexible; staff are friendly and helpful

    Cons

    Hours maxed out at 25 hours per week; position can only last up until 6 months after you graduate; little to no opportunity to stay on full-time; pay is kind of low compared to other agencies that offer similar work; some moderately strenuous field work was involved assisting hydrogeology interns in taking water level measurements

    Easy Job requirements, Supervisors are promoted based on tenure not expertise. This leads to Incompetent management.
