    Okay for a job, but not a place for a career

    I worked at City of Tyler full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The health and other benefits are okay and there are opportunities to gain new job skills.

    Cons

    There are very few opportunities for advancement and it seems like promotions aren't based on merit, but on if the management likes you or not. The pay isn't great and the performance based raises are barely enough to cover cost of living increases. Workers are often asked to go above and beyond and take on many responsibilities outside of their job descriptions without recognition or raises.

    Pros

    Adequate, but not great insurance plan. Most positions work in climate controlled environment.

    Cons

    Dilapidated buildings housing some departments are a health hazard. Leaders and managers with questionable business and personal morals are allowed to bully staff with impunity. Favoritism is common when dealing with vendors and staff. Lousy pay scale at all levels except executive leadership. Only the favorites are allowed the rare advancement opportunities. Security issues are not taken seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid unless you are homeless and your children are starving, and then run as soon as you can.
