    LONG HOURS

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you really work hard there's opportunity of advancement. Certifications and graduate degrees as well as hard work really open the doors for you.

    ConsShort staffed some departments. As an accountant in City Hall, expect to work 11 to 12 hour days year round. Even if you're supposed to work only M-Th (10 hour dats), you end up working various weekends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview pay between staff - some employees do and know a lot more than a lot of higher paid employees. Also stop pushing the work to people who know how to do things and train people who don't instead of overloading some employees (make the workloads even).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Firefighter in the city of El Paso.

    Firefighter (Current Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsGreat job. Great time off. Out of six days you work three 24 hr shifts followed by four days off.

    ConsThe cityinsurance sucks. its a 90 - 10 plan. The insurance will cover 90% and yopur responsible for 10%. With that said it you end up at the ER foe a fall. Your gonna get a bill for 10 % from the hospital, ER doctor, radiologist if they took X rays and any other service that was provided. It will quickly add up.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
