I worked at Cincinnati full-time for 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.

    Functioning, but not innovative.

    I worked at Cincinnati

    Pros

    Nice people who care about the city.

    Cons

    The status quo is often seen as inevitable--employees don't really believe changes they want for their programs or departments will ever actually happen, due to politics or money. That sort of outlook can really take the wind out of your sails when you're working on a project you otherwise really believe in. As a result, even moderate risk or creativity is not encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too few people at the city realize that investing in making its people and systems more competitive internally--through training, young talent attraction, tech upgrades, etc.--can result in exponentially better public services. There is so much emphasis on funding the public services and programs themselves that the city forgets that building its internal capacity is a huge part of the city's ability to deliver (and innovate!) for its citizens.
