Great place to work in a nice environment. Great place to learn a lot of new technologies and use what you already know to apply to your every day job.

This is the best job I ever had and the best boss I ever had. Conscientious people, informed colleagues, empowering work! I left government to go to corporate industry and private law firms - both of which were regrettable and unpleasant experiences. The work in the government was interesting, stimulating, of social and political importance and expansive in its consequences.

Was I flexible etc. Training in LA for entire US team. Could I travel in entire Palm Beach County and possibly outside the county.

Shared on March 3, 2020

Because this department is very fast-paced and the Director is always running around, I was asked if I thought I would be able to keep up with him. I told them I had no doubt I would be able to keep up and was offered the position.
