Strong and well run public works programs in water and wastewater areas
Civil Engineer (Water/Wastewater & Source Control) (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, WA5 July 2012
I learned everything about water and sewer utilities, the review of proposed development, setting up 6 yr capital improvement programs, compliance reports (water and NPDES wastewater), designing pipeline projects for the water system, coordinating on project teams for utility impprovements during regional transportation projects, engineering design and pipeline construction inspection practices. I enjoyed the co-workers at all parts of the city and learned an incredible breadth and depth about all parts of the utility through my work on project planning and proj; management teams
Pros
generous benefits, and mostly the work experience working in a larger program
Cons
i would have enjoyed a chance to work in the construction area before leaving

Overall, the work was interesting.
Project Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC21 February 2018
The culture of this organization can be daunting at times but overall, it was a good place to work.

Advancement is difficult and a vast majority of personnel are working on a contract basis so there is not a lot of job security.
