Good organization going in the wrong direction
Senior Water Resources Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CaJanuary 16, 2017
A lot of highly qualified employees can make for excellent results unfortunately management does not use staff's creativity and skill to benefit the organization. Communicating concerns about projects that may not meet organizational goals is a problem if not aligned with managements political goals.
Pros
Excellent staff
Cons
no flexibility in work schedule

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 21, 2016
This is a great place to work! Mission-driven, talented staff keep projects moving to completion. Innovation is encouraged. Your days will fly by, as there is plenty of varied and rewarding work.This public sector agency is a leader in water supply and management, and the dedicated staff are so proud to be part of that. Great employee benefits, including a tuition reimbursement program. There is an employee association that organises fun activities year-round. Employee training is frequent and covers many topics, from career development to assorted software programs. I have been a Water Authority employee for almost nine years and love working here.
