    1) compensation is less than some other comparable organizations 2) inter-team communication is not as efficient as intra-team ones. 3) sometimes the deadlines can get hectic.

    I had a great experience working there as an intern and would suggest the management to recruit more interns who could learn the basics of organizational management from such great mentors.

    Pros

    The retirement benefits are some of the best in municipal government. Better than average when compared to other major municipalities.

    Cons

    Currently, the city recqires all non-unionemployees earning more than $78,000 per yer to take 24 mandatory unpaid days (included are 12 unpaid holidays).

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to find a way to require all union employees to share in the burden of balancing the city budget.
