    Pros

    The time off, both in holidays and vacation and sick time is good. If you have a family, this is a definite plus. The pay has become much more equitable with the private sector, but only due to the economic downturn...salaries have fallen in other industries. The City has managed to navigate the recession with only five layoffs while other local governments have had hundreds. For those of us who have worked here over 9 years, there is a generous pension. For newer employees, there is a lesser pension, but it is better than Social Security and they have a 401k with a 5% employer match.

    Cons

    There have been no merit pay increases for non-union employees in three years...just raises for those who have managers/directors who fight for them with the City Manager. City management seems to cave to the unions more often than not...union employees have been paying less for the exact same pension and health benefits, though that has been brought even with non-union employees over the past year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop favoring the union employees to the detriment of those who are not. Also, improve communication from the top down so we don't have to learn things going on with the City from the local newspaper.
