    I have been working at City of Orlando

    Pros

    Great place to learn the art of communication, and to become comfortable and confident in managing people, and public

    Cons

    Political savy is a must for survival. Its all about who you know. Innovation is not often rewarded. Riddled with pettiness and lacking conviavility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a performance bonus structure
    More effort into education

    I have been working at City of Orlando as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The absolute best thing about working for the City is that you get recognize that you "WORK" for the City of Orlando.

    Cons

    The main Challenge for me personally, it's hard to get ahead because of personal feelings toward individuals. Too many "cliques". I feel as though certain people in HR are looking for friends to move ahead in the career advancement and not very good candidates. There needs to be some shuffling around and some new eager leadership roles should be in place to make it a truly an Equal Opportunity work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop having "Tunnel Vision". You may have gems right under your noses that's ready for a chance to prove themselves worthy.

    I worked at City of Orlando full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive salary and some opportunity to move.

    Cons

    they may freeze your promotions for years. The government mentality could be challenging for someone coming from the private sector because it moves very slow and every change requires an act of heaven but if stability is what you are looking this is the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sensitive to employers needs
