    I have been working at City of Portland (Oregon) as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some staff and supervisors are great at their jobs and are genuinely sweet people. Outside of the bureaucratic structures that lock in a lot of behavioral constraints the City is full of folks who are well-meaning and personable. Generally this is a pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    The majority of City employees are unionized, but in the tight economy some bureaus have been hemorrhaging staff in order to balance their budgets. This leaves a lot of ongoing program and urgent programs unstaffed. To patch this, the City is bringing in contract workers - un-unionized and un-benefited. This creates a weird two-tiered class system within the staff. It's pretty uncomfortable to work here in a contract capacity, doing the same skilled tasks that were previously done by a unionized employee, and working with (and sometimes covering for) people who do have those benefits, while not having access to any of the resources or benefits that come with the job.
