    No one fully thinks through processes and potential to change positions is limited.

    Support Staff IV (Current Employee) Bloomington, IL

    ProsIf you can get a full time job, they do give you benefits.

    ConsThere are tons of clicks and promotion is not based on merit. It is very important who you make friends with - it has an effect on advancement. Wages do not increase on a schedule. Just because you are qualified, can do the work well, and have asked to do the work does not mean they even interview you for the position when it becomes available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe City Manager rules everything. City Council makes poor decisions on a regular basis.

    Good Place to work if you want government experience

    ProsDecent work environment, can learn about all facets of municipal govt, decent pay and benefits

    Consgoals can change after each election, little opportunity to provide feedback to Sr leadership, govt does not go near the cutting edge due to beauracracy. Little opportunity for advancement.

    Although it was a fun experience, it eventually lead to nothing.

    Golf Shop Employee (Current Employee) Bloomington, IL

    ProsAs far as working at the golf course goes, I'd say the best reason to work for the City of Bloomington is for the free golf. The co-workers are also usually very nice as well.

    ConsNo room for moving up in the organization. You're a minimum wage employee and your job is treated as such.
