    Pay is low and the incompetence of the city government leaves employees in a near constant state of crisis.

    I have been working at City of East Point, GA

    Pros

    The immediate department is pretty good, and the work is interesting. The citizens are appreciative and supportive.

    Cons

    The city government is literally insane. The elected officials, particularly the mayor, constantly interfere in and meddle with operations, and the city's history of poor financial management means a near permanent state of crisis, which the employees bear much of the brunt of. Salaries are low and benefits are costly compared to surrounding areas, overtime is payable only as comp time, and every year at budget time there is talk of layoffs and/or furlough days, which actually happen about 1/3 of the time. In 11 years there have been one round of massive layoffs, and three fiscal years with unpaid furlough days, and one or the other appears to be in the works for FY 2013.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This city has become a training ground for developing and refining abilities, which then benefit other towns who hire our employees away. Better pay and a more stable, respectful and positive work environment, and a level of appreciation for competent employees who stay on, are needed if you don't want other cities constantly skimming off our cream of the crop, leaving a core of people who can't get hired elsewhere as the senior personnel.
