I was in the Public Relations department and got to work with a fantastic team. Aside from office politics and a lot of red tape when it came to making decisions, the company was fantastic.
My direct manager was amazing. He's been there for several years, and was willing to help me learn, grow and succeed within my role. The hardest part of the job was being in a creative role in a government based setting. As a parent of a young child my schedule can get wonky when school let's out or flue season is in, but they worked through it with me and were always open to my schedule as long as the work got done.
There are policies and procedures that come with a public company that many don't think of within the private sector. That being said, I feel like anyone with (a lot of) patience and the willingness to learn public-based policies will succeed here.
Ability to learn and grow within role, great pay, great benefits, retirement and 401K matching, potential for advancement, great people to work with
Office Politics, technology efficiency, government procedures, parking lot blockage
