Productive and good job culture
Extra Help Assistant (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARJuly 26, 2018
While at ADEQ I learned what corporate advertisement looks like and appeals to the masses. I worked alongside very capable and hardworking individuals that are always productive. Due to the workplace culture being so friendly, it is easy to communicate with your superiors. The most enjoyable part of the job is all of the connections you make with different individuals.
Pros
Free Gym with locker rooms, beautiful building, trail behind the building leading to the Big Dam Bridge

Intern (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARJuly 11, 2018
I was only an intern at ADEQ, but the time I spent there was great. The people who work there are great people to work with, and the work/life balance was nice too.

Very toxic.
Public Information Coordinator (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARJuly 10, 2018
The director's office pushes out staff who have institutional knowledge so they can shape people to how they want the agency run. After they push out, or fire long-term employees, they bring in friends, with no experience. This is the death of what used to be great department.
Cons
Extremely poor management

Mechanical Engineer/Designer (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARJuly 8, 2018
Great overall work environment and great people to work with. However it has all the trimmings of a bureaucracy in upper management. No clear path to advance your career and raises are few and far between.
Pros
Work environment, benefits, federal holidays
Cons
bureaucracy and no clear path to advance career or to receive promotions.

Engineer/Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Rock, ARJanuary 21, 2018
Great agency overall. Facility and work culture is very good and everyone is friendly and helpful. Benefits are great. The only negatives are the lower than industry average rate of pay for all disciplines and that there is no clear path to advance your career.

Great place to start a career in an environmental field.
Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARApril 8, 2016
For someone starting out, the pay is livable and the benefits are alright. The best things about working there is the wealth of experience in regulatory affairs and the contacts that you make in the environmental compliance community. Like any job, you get out of it what you put in.
