    Pros

    I worked in the Support Services Division. It was a great place to work. Friendly staff and it was easy to collaborate to get things done.

    Cons

    Management was fine. It did seem like I had 3 managers in 5 years though.

    Pros

    -Very laid back -Lots of flexibility -Tremendous work/life balance -Good pay compared to other public jobs

    Cons

    -Potential to be so slow that it could be boring, especially if you aren't good at finding ways to occupy your time on your own -Because it's public, promotions are pretty much based on years of service instead of performance.

    Horrible, even by state agency standards

    Pros

    The parking garage is covered and a short walk to the agency.

    Cons

    This was the worst job I've ever had. The management fired people willy-nilliy for BS reasons. I got my performance review 6 months late, and she had copy and pasted things from another employee onto it. I couldn't complain to HR because the woman was OVER HR. Management was catty and cliquey. It was like being stuck in a sorority full of 30 year olds. This was the second state agency I worked for, and they did things that were underhanded and straighrt-up illegal in their hiring and firing practices.

    A small agency that is big on relationships

    Pros

    I have worked in the public sector for most of my professional career and TWDB is the smallest agency I have worked with thus far. It's small size allows for you to know more people, even within other program areas, and the board members would often come around to say help and bring dessert. The quarterly agency meetings were also truly a surprise as they were consistently entertaining as well as informative. Overall, the morale was consistently boosted while working with TWDB and it is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The small size is what makes it great but this also hurts growth. There are not enough ways to grow horizontally or vertically, especially within IT.
