    I have been working at City of Downey, CA part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Environment is friendly, hours are focused around students (there are more hours June through august than the rest of the year). Management is very good at working with unique situations.

    Not many opportunities for specific career development. Also, pay is lower than equivalent jobs around the area.

    I worked at City of Downey, CA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits at the time were good.

    Cons

    Management has their own rules for those they like and would promote people without an opportunity for anyone else to apply also a lot of neoptism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apply policies to employees the same regardless of who they know or are related to.

    Pros

    The ability to work hands on with the future leaders of the community and be able to guide them and mentor them into a fruitful future through a strong education.

    Cons

    The programs lacked more participation in the school community and would have achieved greater success if it worked alongside with the school district.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe though it is a young and growing program, it still has many areas of potential growth and improvement.
