    I have been working at City of Newport Beach California

    Pros

    Security, benefits and positive working environment make the City a confortable place to work. Exposure to a wide variety of "big city" issues and enough independence to pursue them distinguishes this city. Opportunity for advancement, if you're patient.

    Cons

    Innovative relative to many other local government agencies in Callifornia, not the most innovative environment relative to the private sector. Political priorities too often reign over satisfying core responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Administration is responsible for running interference on the politics that reduce staff's productivity and too few take their responsibility seriously, deferring to midmanagement to run interference. Step up.

    I worked at City of Newport Beach California

    Pros

    Beautiful city to work in. The people who live there are generally supportive of city government and public safety. It will always be an affluent area.

    Cons

    Employees are not always treated well or fairly by managent. There is a lot of back stabbing by other employees for promotional opportunities.
