    Easy Going and Pleasant Work Environment, even in times of stress.

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsMost of the folks in the involved in IT/IS have been with the City for 5+ years, giving a base of knowledge and history that is invaluable. The Culture is very laid back, but also result driven. Less concerned about what is happening on an hour / daily basis, as long as there is progress being made and goals / deadlines are met.

    ConsMost of the folks had been there for 5+ years, and there was sometimes a culture of 'its been working for us this long, why change it now?

    Being Government, there was often a lack of funding for needed projects, or politically driven efforts at other times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSend folks to current Education Conventions rather then Vendor fests. Like Tech-ED etc. to bring some 'current' information in where there isn't a lot of 'new blood'.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Poorly equipped, underfunded, but personally satisfying job.

    Law Enforcemnt (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsThe people you work with are some of the most dedicated because they do it for so little money in such a bad situation. There is always something different to do. It feels good to help peoples.

    ConsVery underfunded. Cronyism in the ranks is prevalent. Pay is abysmal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease weed out the rampant cronyism and secure better equipment (cars, cameras, light bars, ect).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    government job-what do you experct

    Permit Clerk (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    Prosa job in this economy
    no weekends, off by 5 pm
    good benefits, paid time off
    my co workers are lovely to get along with

    Conspay-its a government job, so you're not gonna be getting any raises or bonuses too often
    career advancement- you get in the front door on your own merit, once you're in, you have to kiss and "politic" to get a promotion
    promotions are based on who likes you
    no tuition reimbursement if they dont like your classes
    pension is auto taken out your check-you cant opt out!!
    supervisor is not at all concerned about you or your personal career growth!!

    Advice to Senior Managementneed to give at least a cost of living raise every year
    supervisors need to care more about their employees and how to advance them in the next area of career growth
    supervisors should get an annual review from their workers, bet a lot of changes would be made
    offer better starting pay
