    Pros

    On the ground experience working in affordable housing development. Good work /life balance. Making positive changes in city for the residents.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganizations can hamper effectiveness, there are some political appointees in key positions who are not interested in doing a good job. They are sometimes beholden to developers.

    Pros

    All of my coworkers were very nice, my work gave back to the community, the standards of work and etiquette are high, and benefits are fair. There was vacation, sick time, and tuition reimbursement, which was of value to me.

    Cons

    Pay was way below average, and in order to make more money you need to stay there longer, or get promoted. Salary is not based on merit. Politics are totally involved, obviously. The bathrooms are awful.

    Pros

    Meet a lot of people, learn the city, learn a profession and a disciplined field.

    Cons

    Fractured leadership. No consistency with rules and regulations. To much patronage hiring at the top of the chain of command.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the patrol force, and act on some of there ideas.
