This is a government job and comes with various challenges. Some good some harder to accept. Lots of standards and regulations to learn and adhere to.
Work is steady and fast paced but always underfunded making standards, mandates, and servicing high expectations with little resources a challenge. Seemed to have an above average turnover in management and general staff. Always has turnover of elected officials which causes adjustments and perceptions on a regular and ongoing basis.
Benefits and pension are a great feature that makes the negatives tolerable.
