    I worked at City of Carrollton (less than an year)

    Pros

    My upper managers were reasonable with time frames of projects.
    Other employees were nice and great to work with.
    Pretty stable work environment since it is a municipal government after all.

    Cons

    The office seemed a little too sealed off at time.
    Some of the departments are too siloed off.
    A little too divided in working

  2.  

    Management is not honest, trustworthy. No leadership at the City, which is sad, since they manage residents money.

    I worked at City of Carrollton full-time

    Pros

    I can't think of anything that would make me tell a friend to look for a job here. When you have received so many pay increases. They are ready for you to go. They want to bring in someone they will start out at the bottom of the pay grade. I would look some where else.

    Cons

    No leadership, management is dishonest, you can not trust your manager at all!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I first started working there I really liked it. Then some upper-management employees left. They filled the positions with unqualified management. Advise to the City Council. Take a good look at your directors and managers. They are making the City of Carrollton look really bad.

    I have been working at City of Carrollton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and pay is competitive. The majority of the people you work with are great, spanning across all departments. Job security.

    Cons

    Depending on the area you work in may be difficult to move up. Sometimes management have unlikely expectations. Seems the budget gets cut more and more, meaning raises are not always available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say your going to do. Less micro managing and do not set unrealistic goals.
