Changing for the worse
Regulatory (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, floridaNovember 19, 2012
SFWMD had a culture that valued it's employees. Compensation and benefits were fantastic since they employeed highly motivated staff.

Within the past year or two it is my understanding that moral has deminished and staff is not as united as times past.
Pros
benefits
Cons
new leadership created low moral
