    I have been working at City of Houston full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are many different entry level positions covering all areas of studies. They train you if you need it. If you stay over five years, they start giving you more vacation time.

    Cons

    The compensation isn't great since it is the government. Poor performers are often shielded. Work life balance depends on the department you work with.

The largest city in Texas (and one of the largest in the US), Houston is much more than an oil town.
