    I have been working at City of Minneapolis

    Pros

    - adding a few more people of color in management positions, though they may be limited in knowledge and experience

    Cons

    - Top heavy in highly paid managers. Too large a city council for a city its size.
       - Houston 2.1 million 14 Council members
       - Austin 790,000 6
       - Denver 600,000 13
       - Miami 399,000 5
    - too focused only on good news, does not listen well to employee's opinions
    - little communication between departments that make it harder to resolve problems (attitude, "we've
      always done it this way.")
    - much favoritism towards long-time employees
    - seldom are annual reviews done, and almost no reviews on managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During this budget crises, cut back on staff AND managers AND number of Council members and their Aides. Reduce salaries evenly across all jobs, including managers and Council members.
