    Approves of CEO

    I worked at City of Houston full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The City of Houston provides excellent training, company values, benefits, parking incentives and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Administrative and/or office personnel are not recognized in a timely manner when it comes to promotions within the company. As a result, they are relocated or passed over to fill vacancies and not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Office staff members are the right hand to upper management. They work selfishly to accommodate management and are expected to maintain daily operations of the office. Without us, the office would not run as smoothly.
