    I worked at Los Angeles

    Pros

    Great place to work for. The benefits of working for the city are top notch. Depending on where you are assigned the job can be very exciting.

    Cons

    The management is not there to help you. With the camera phones that everyone has now , it is really difficult to be an officer in this day and age. Once you get in trouble the department WILL NOT back you up.

    Current Employee - Project Engineer Manager in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Los Angeles full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Getting experience on large scale projects. Training was available within the City and in universities in Southern California, The City encourages getting board certification in my field and pay for courses that help achieving such certifications. It is a Civil Service System and you are protected in slow economy from being laid off.

    Cons

    It is salaried position so there is a roof on how much you would be making.
