    Cons

    Work wasn't challenging. Low compensation. No growth potential. No reference will be provided at the end of the internship, due to upper management requirement to avoid law suit - what a joke. Just a summer job. Go better places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul internship program.

    I have been working at City of Cedar Rapids

    Pros

    Ever changing, but at a good pace. For the most part all employees are nice and easy to work for and with in all departments.

    Cons

    Sometimes communications between various departments is not good on some projects. Gradually, this is becoming less and less of a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep providing city workers with the tools we need to do our jobs better and create a positive atmosphere for the community at large.
