    I worked at City of Walnut Creek California full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, beautiful city, appreciative citizens, good equipment, decent training, lots of opportunity for increased seniority due to high turn over.

    Cons

    The city was known for terrible micromanaging in the past. Several lateral officers regretted coming to the agency. The inexperienced leadership is learning as they go. (It may be better now) The agency is small so opportunities can be limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sweat the small stuff, you have great people.

    I worked at City of Walnut Creek California part-time

    Pros

    Clean city hall, well run office. Planners know what they're doing.

    Cons

    Expensive place to live in. Traffic can get pretty bad during rush hour (but that's the same for everywhere).

    Pros

    People who work there are awesome!
    Hanging out with kids is super fun
    great work hours (scheduled between 7-6 M-F so you always have weekends free)
    great first job

    Cons

    Upper management can be biased towards office staff
    Can also be overbearing at times and doesn't let older staff just run things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Feel free to give more responsibility to senior leaders and let them do the work for you. Be confident in your staff
