    Current Employee - Auditor in Colorado Springs, CO

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance in my department. Our office is not located in the CAB.

    Cons

    My department currently suffers from a lack of independence. Our compensation is below market. City Leadership lost a lot of institutional experience when the Mayor took over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees with experience. Play by the same rules you expect us to live by. Be more transparent.

    I have been working at City of Colorado Springs full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great location if you work in the CAB (City Administration Building)

    Cons

    Very political environment, hard to make progress on anything because of the politically minded/driven managers, managers like to fraternize with their favorites, you are expected to be a yes man, O and it will suck out your soul chew it up and spit it out.

    The pay may be good, but don't forget that it's controlled by one entity, the Mayor.

    Pros

    The Springs was a great employer. They have a solid commitment to professional development, empowerment and innovation.

    Cons

    Political climate was very anti-government. No matter how good your work was, some citizen group or another found fault with it.
