      Pros

      - very diverse community that has a lot to offer for veterans - the benefits are good - work life balance is decent

      Cons

      - the organization's culture isn't professional at this facility - at times upper management do not express duties in a coherent fashion, they can be unorganized, this lack of communication leads to frustration - there is a lot of internal disputes across departments that lead to a poor quality work

      Cemetery Work

      Pros

      It's important work. You get to work with and help fellow military veterans and their families. You get to work with a lot of varied and interesting equipment. It's customer service work and much more. It's an interesting work environment, quite attractive for a cemetery. Generally, good pay, and good benefits. Good Hours, with pretty decent opportunities for overtime work if one wants it.

      Cons

      It's cemetery work. You're outdoors all the time, obviously. The work is laborious, dirty, heavy duty, fast paced, and not for everyone. Being outdoors and in SoCal, the summers are hot and getting hotter and more grueling, but there are air conditioned break rooms and great ice machines to help make the hot days more bearable. When it does rain, things get muddy and slippery, but good rain gear and PPE is provided.
