    Training was incomplete. Be prepared to not be able to answer every question asked from customers at first. Work is routine and boring during the winter. Frantic pace during the summer.

    I have been working at City of Rockville, Maryland full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Nice coworkers. Competent , professional coworkers. Satisfaction of providing public service. Affluent community doesn't struggle with challenges of other local governments.

    Cons

    Not as many promotional opportunities as in larger government organizations. Politics of elected leadership and community sometimes trickle down to staff. Economic forecast shows challenges to providing pay raises in next few years. Lots of changes happening in 2012-2013. New city manager and at least two new department heads create some unknowns about management style changes.
