    I have been working at City of Houston as an intern

    Pros

    As an intern the staff went out of their way to expose me to many aspects of city government and provide opportunities for resume enrichment.

    Cons

    Sadly it is unpaid. Depending on the department you're in parking can be a nightmare. Experiences will vary depending on department.

    Current Employee - Police Sergeant in Houston, TX

    I have been working at City of Houston full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Houston Police Department is quite diverse and offers great job variety for each officer to specialize in area of interest.

    Cons

    Seniority is important for first 5 years. Must work shift work and unlikely to have weekends off. Patrol can be dangerous but also exciting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and support officer and sergeant level personnel. They perform the daily duties of the organization.
