Current Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at City and County of San Francisco full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The salary and benefits are very competitive. Most of the newer, younger employees have been great to work with. The nature of the work is very interesting, and my manager is very understanding. My manager has also listened to me and has changed my assignments based on what I'm interested in, which I appreciate.

Cons

A lot of the older works are stereotypical bureaucrats, who are very difficult trying to work around at times. I wish they would abolish the bumping system and I wish they could more easily fire the ineffective workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out away to be able to fire the ineffective employees.

    I worked at City and County of San Francisco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    extremely stable, difficult to get fired. Great benefits including dental, vision and life insurance.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities unless politically connected. Difficult personalities abound since it's practically impossible to get fired or be promoted. People stay in same position for years, decades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work with unions to open up ways to motivate employees to become more productive rather than simply waiting for retirement.

    I worked at City and County of San Francisco as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart staff, community connection, bike room for storing your bicycle, showers and working at City Hall is great.

    Cons

    Seasonal job did not allow steady and regular employment. Tight budgets make it hard to have quality office equipment and materials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your top people. They are smart, have values and they care. Keep doing what you are doing; it's working.
