    I have been working at City of Englewood

    Pros

    Small full-service city, opportunity to become involved at various levels, high-level commitment to community service, family type atmosphere in some respects, good but not great benefits, wonderful people to work with in general.

    Cons

    Small city, sales tax dependent for general fund. Elected officials sometimes have a hard time keeping the provision of basic city services the first priority in budgeting, and are very recluctant to increase revenue generation through raising taxes, even though the area enjoys one of the lowest property tax mil levies in the state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work towards the provision of stable revenues to a level providing basic city services, and add discretionary services when revenues exceed those basic requirements.

    The Peter Principle in full effect.

    I have been working at City of Englewood

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible schedule, many holidays off, great vacation package.

    Cons

    No room for growth and the Peter Principle is in effect. Like most public sector jobs, favoritism is based more on longevity and who you know than having skills and a strong work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership in my organization is non-existent. Upper management is filled with incompetent people that were put in positions above there ability.
