    Cons

    Can be dishonest when it comes to pay
    There's a need to record everything you do to cover your @$$
    Many managers just coasting to retirement
    Little to zero feedback for work done

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time working with staff
    Spend more time actually doing your job

    Pros

    Compressed work week, flex days, ability to bank stat holidays that fall on the weekend, good place to get experience

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. The business units operate as their own areas with no regard to the CIty as a whole. Lots of older senior management that are coasting through to retirement.

    Advice to Management

    The City needs to operate as a complete organization. Business units constantly squabbling over who will pay for what out of departmental budgets is helping no one. Recruiting fresh talent for managerial roles is required.
