    Pros

    All the holidays off
    balance work/life
    Employees are hard-workers.

    Cons

    I worked for the City of Houston as an Intern for a month, then I was asked to come onboard as a contract worker promising a guarantee employment after I graduated from college.
    The City of Houston is known for a steady job and benefits. Well, the benefits are no longer what they used to be. " Steady employment, " means there is no room for growth unless you are one of the "favorite upper-management employees." Try applying for a job with the City and see if you'll receive a call, or email back, even if you have applied 15 times ! City of Houston works on the " good 'ole boy system. " Even if you are qualified your application will never get to the hire manager before COH employees relatives. If you are one of the lucky ones to land a job with City, please learn as much as you can and RUN !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the office politics
    If you see an individual that is a hard-worker, and eager to learn promote that person
    Stop hiring relatives
    Look at everyone application without bias intent.
