    Pros

    Test people to work with, great hours, best training I ever had at a job. Rasies are yearly as well as cost of living raises.

    Cons

    no room for advancement. People stay at the same positions for 20 years. I have known many people who work an important postion for 10 or 15 years without benefites. Its tough to get benefits there as well as full time..

    Advice to Management

    YOU really should give people beenfits and more full time postions so they wouldnt have to look for work elsewhere. Other than that its a wonderfulplace to work.

    Pros

    Great hours. Worked a 4/10, which allowed me to have a 3 day weekend normally, and quite often a 4 day weekend. Benefits were amazing, which is usually the case at any government job. Vacation and sick hours accrue fast. Pay was higher than average and there were several opportunities for overtime.

    Cons

    Unfortunately promotions do not come up very often working for the City. A City employee may leave, however with budget cuts, that does not always mean they will open up the job to current employees after the former employee resigns. 30 minute lunch is not ideal, unless you plan to bring your lunch daily.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I loved the fact that I was rewarded for every project I completed, and I had the best boss in the City! I really appreciated the constant uplifting and pat on the back.

  6. Typical bureaucracy

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits, easy schedule. They had some staff on 4/10 schedules and some on 9/80s. The staff that worked 5 days work weeks were very resentful of older staff who had the more premium schedules.

    Cons

    Constant back stabbing, people pushing work onto other people, no flexibility of hours. Staff is very rigid about their jobs and unwilling to go beyond their job descriptions. Union staff.

  7. Great Place to Work
