    I worked at City of Norfolk (Virginia) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best part about working for the City of Norfolk is that you hardly have to be there. Time off in the form of leave and paid holidays is very generous. Work- life balance was great.

    Cons

    There is a lot of cronyism going on in The City so you should be prepared to see unqualified people who are friends with senior management come into positions at a higher pay step than what they will offer the general public. There is very little opportunity for personal growth unless you one of the chosen few. Training has been cut since the economy tanked and is relegated to computer training for software the City doesn't have. I feel like I lost valuable skills during my tenure.

     Many managers have been there since the 80's and still have the mentality that the City of Norfolk is a great place to work. In actuality, the pay is far below the market rate for private jobs and raises have been around 2% across the board for the past three years. Another point of contention is the pension plan. It's great if you can make it 30 years but you are required to contribute 5% of your annual salary. You are not vested until 5 years so when you leave you will receive a payout of the accumulated 5%.

    Management is allowed to mistreat employees without recourse. HR is useless and any complaint filed against a manager by a subordinate usually results in the subordinate being reprimanded. There are cliques and you can be in one day and out the next, especially if you have differing views. The work environment can be considered hostile in most departments and most employees are scared to complain because of the aforementioned statement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the taxpayers. Vote the appointed dead weight out of office and get someone in there that will clean house. Sometimes the only way to make a change is to make a complete change.
