    I have been working at City of Houston full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location, job security after the one year probation period.

    Cons

    Nepotism. Ghetto administration. How embarrassing. Coworkers are all out to get you, there is no team spirit whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone, including yourselves, and start over.

    I have been working at City of Houston full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers, pay and benefits, vacation and holidays

    Cons

    Drama, bullying, gossip, overt and covert nepotism, unfairness, pettiness, extremely stressful, low morale, incompetent management, lack of character and integrity across the board

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your core group. Those are the workers that make your organization successful. They're loyal, devoted, and grind every day with little or no complaint, regardless of their own personal circumstances. They are an asset to your organization, no matter how hard your managers/supervisors/nepotist employees try and make them believe otherwise. I've seen a lot of great people leave because of that. It's a shame, really. This organization really has the potential to be listed as one of the greatest places in the country to work, but the rampant cruelty, unnecessarily competitive atmosphere, hyper-stressful and unsupportive environment makes the organization hostile.
