    I worked at City of Detroit (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you can work with a lot of red tape, the job can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Too much red-tape. No consideration given to those who have been displaced through lay offs for open competitive positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never relinquish grants that do not affect the General Fund and displace workers into the street.
