I worked at City of Baltimore

Pros

Location, no stress, easyt going

Cons

Boring job - no upside.
-Long hours.
-Incompetent staff.
-Incompetent managers.
-Multiple projects at the same time with same deadlines.
-Decent salary, but the pay does not justify hours and stress levels.
-Mobile devices - blackberry and laptop give managers the right to bother you whenever and wherever with questions. No clear distinction between work and life balance.
-Some industry groups have "cliques." The partners of these cliques work on the best clients of that particular group, determine compensation, and promotions. You need to luck out and get on one of those clients or you are out of luck. Careers shouldn't be based on luck of the draw.

    I have been working at City of Baltimore full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The most positive aspects of this work are the extremely talented colleagues, and the importance of the work that we do.

    Cons

    There is a high level of beaurocracy and all suggestions to improve the process are treated as additions, thereby complicating all work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency is better, and allowing all levels of employees to recommend improvements would help.
