I worked at Cincinnati full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Very much a "what you make of it" type employer. If you work hard, there are plenty of opportunities. If you don't do much, you probably won't get far.
The benefits are very good though over the years have degraded. And will probably continue to get worse.

Cons

Pay is on the lower end of the spectrum for individuals with degrees. You may hear that government employees make just as much money as those in the private sector plus they have wonderful benefits. I left the City for a position where I made a lot more money. The insurance was a little more pricey but the difference in pay more than made up for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand that while you are need to keep the tax payers happy, if you don't get and keep high quality employees, you won't be able to provide the services that the tax payers demand.

    I worked at Cincinnati full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good work-life balance. Also, was a good experience for an entry-level employee. The health and retirement benefits are also very competitive.

    Cons

    As with all public sector work the income will be below similar positions in the private sector. Leadership will on depend on the elected officials and therefore can change at the next election.

    I have been working at Cincinnati full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are out of work, and they offer you a job it is highly recommended to take it. Pay is above min wage, there is benefits with low monthly cost

    Cons

    Company values are not what they say, most all have continued to adopt that this is the way it has always been, not going to change. The vacation accrual is not good, the shift differential is still only .50/hr, it has been this way for many years, health benefits co-pays and deductibles are expensive and getting higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why will not listen, unless it makes them look good in the public eye.
