    Variety of opportunities if you can get them

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStill on pension system, generous vacation and sick leave

    ConsBelow market average for pay, except for ok pension and vacation/sick leave benefits package is subpar, definitely who-you-know not what-you-know culture

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to listen to the front line employees and include them in your decision making processes. When you can't, at least listen to them and explain what you can/cannot do for them. Happy workers = better workers.

    Cautious outlook

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsIn the right Department, job security is outstanding. If employed prior to about 2004, pensions and health benefits after retirement are good. Commitment to improving service to Customers as been maintained for several years & continues to improve.

    ConsDegenerating benefits, poor compensation reviews and failure to keep up with inflation. Top-heavy and very inefficient.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward top-performers, provide/underwrite training & education to employees in need.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Rewarding

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsIt's the kind of environment where you're surrounded with people willing to lend a helping hand. Additionally, the people I worked with maintained a very high level of professionalism I hadn't necessarily expected.

    ConsLike what most city governments may be like, there's a lack of efficiency you don't see as often in the private sector. Sometimes it would take a while for information to be passed where it needed to go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook for ways to improve efficiency; often the best ideas will come from the lowest ranks.
