    I have been working at City of Kent - Washington full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great retirement. Public sector has the reward of being able to impact the community in a positive way.

    Cons

    Many incompetent managers. Upper management is very disconnected with the average worker. HR doesn't like to promote from within, would rather recruit. Lost the personal connection with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with your employees. become engaged. Empower employees to make decisions. Follow through with what you start #BeMore

    Train your managers to be managers. Don't just hire and forget. Give them the tools and knowledge to become better managers.
