    In my case, as a temporary worker, there was no option to move up.

    Former Employee - Meter Reader/Maintenance in Auburn, WA

    I worked at City of Auburn, WA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy work, easy commute for most, decent pay, good work/life balance, lots of time off.

    Cons

    Not innovative, overtime is a joke, hard to advance, very political, it is definetly small business feeling where everyone knows everyone, most people are looking to leave to work elsewhere, co workers can be jerks, lots more...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the training you learn in your classes to make it a better place to work, don't belittle people below you just because they are not as knowledgeable.

    Former Employee - Systems Analyst in Auburn, WA

    I worked at City of Auburn, WA

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent medical and other benefits including time off. Only $50 is deducted from your paycheck per month no matter how big your family is.

    Cons

    Communication from departmental leadership is sorely lacking across the board. Leadership treatment of people under them is very poor in certain departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people with more respect and worry less about your own ego. You can't manage people properly and earn their respect if you do not give it yourself.
