A Meaningful Career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at City of New York full-time for more than a year

ProsMost employees genuinely care about improving the lives of others and work tirelessly. Hours are very easy and make for a good work/life balance. Basic benefits packages are good. If you work hard, you can achieve great results.

ConsExpect low salaries and poor benefits, as it is public sector. Processes are bureaucratic and can be hard to move quickly. Culture is political at higher levels, but is to be expected. Little mobility.

Advice to Senior ManagementThank you for supportive, results-oriented leadership.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
