Working for the RRC is a safe job and you learn a lot about federal and state regulations. It is frustrating to work for a government organization with all the redundancies that are in place. Travel can be cumbersome and exhausting. First-level management needs some improvement and consistency needs to be a lot better. All in all, not a bad career.

Don't recommend anyone who is has smarts or initiative to take a job here at all. You will be sorely disappointed. Managers are totally ignorant of managing. Promoting is not done the standard way, instead it's favoritism.

This place is fantastic for work life balance, pay and benefits are decent to fantastic when you consider the workload. Making one's own calendar month to month and setting one's own hours is fantastic. However. Management style is sporadic and lacks positive or cohesive mission direction. By that I mean to say that management can vary drastically from region to region to Austin HQ. Interaction with management vary greatly from region to region, some see their manager once a month with little to no input on daily work; other regions see their manager every day with constant input on daily work. Directives that are mission critical may be placed on the website, or disseminated only via an email with no "high importance" flag or explanation. Very little coaching or uniformity of messaging/JD updates. Employees in the field may get one directive from Austin HQ, but be told to do something entirely different by regional management; and both may differ from what other inspectors or the operators that you're auditing expect. Training at the federal level is awesome, though sometimes doesn't apply to state level of job performance. There's very little training at the state level to prepare inspectors appropriately or uniformly for optimal job performance, and employees are often left to determine critical matters subjectively, only to be told later by someone senior that it should've been done differently. Typical level of politics for a state agency. Very flat organization- little opportunity for advancement or merit advancements; only advancement by political favor or possibly attrition. One of the highest turnover rates ever seen in professional life, and really odd for a job with such high training requirements. Many highly trained and well respected inspectors get poached by industry. That said it's overall a great place to work.

This is not a recommended place to work. The staff is not helpful in a team setting and it is not a place for growth. It was unfortunate because I longed to work for Texas, but this was truly lacking in respect of the great state.

Everyone there seemed driven to succeed and willing to help out others. Some of the work can be tedious depending what department you are in. Never feel a lack of community.
