    Pros

    The community around the monterey bay is lovely

    Cons

    There are very old buildings, The management of the organization are career public servants. They have not been able to move forward into the twentieth century. Time cards ares still done on paper. There is a natural fear to do anything that is not normally and that is for information technology. Finally there is constant waste of tax papaers money on equipment or software than may not be ever be used.

    Outdated buildings, contaminated water lines, faulty electrical, asbesto building, and you can reward a employee for working extra hours with time off or a lunch cause that is against the law..

    Advice to Management

    Move forward to the 21st century, Do not waste my tax dollar
