Frustrating and Stressful
ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Kingman, AZ – April 11, 2018
Overall experience was great and I learned a lot, worked with some very good people, external agencies, and great projects..
But, changes in top mgt were horrible for staff and policies, personnel rules changed for the worse, no advancement or promotion potential in my job field, no cost of living increases (for anyone working for the state), no wage increases unless state legislature gives you one. Forced to go uncovered - no unions - no protections for workers. Horrible and archaic personnel rules putting all non-management staff is jeopardy with little to no recourse.
Innovative, creative, and cost savings ideas are typically ignored and it takes a long time to get anything positive done or changed.
work/life balance good, benefits awesome
Engineers should be hired to engineer, not manage people
