    I have been working at City of Philadelphia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits make the city a good place to work. Room for growth and advancement as well. Training prepares you for the position you will hold. Work/life balance is awesome. Become knowledgeable about many different city agencies.

    Cons

    The con is the requirement to live in the city of Philadelphia. And as any goverment position has old ideas and lacks innovative policy and procedures. The compensation could be better, not competitive at all.
