Pros

Most 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.

Cons

Expect 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 Management

Thank you for supportive, results-oriented leadership.

    Pros

    The patients are very gracious and happy to receive the services provided.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy and red tape. The leadership in the departments do not let managers 'lead' or make changes.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire something to be a manager, let them be in charge of their staff and work with you to implement changes.


  2. Amazing opportunities to improve the city, if you can handle the bureaucracy

    Pros

    Immediate effects from your work
    Some of the most dedicated, professional, insightful colleagues you will ever encounter
    A culture that both supports innovation and makes you work to prove its useful

    Cons

    Government intractability can be frustrating. Dealing with civil service "scopes of work," and other red tape can infuriate even the most calm person.
    Depending on your level, the pay is decent, but very few additional benefits like in the private sector -- for often just as much, if not more, work.

    Advice to Management

    While difficult to implement in a government system, finding some way to consistently reward people with things other than paper certificates would help retain talent that isn't just there for their pension.
