I worked at City of Norfolk (Virginia)

Pros

Good exposure to diverse technology and the opportunity to stretch your skills. Good leadership and peers and other employees were supportive

Cons

As with many other public institutions there are limits to compensation. Salary and bonuses were sub-par, but there was a pension which is rare to come by.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to invest in staff and embrace the flow of local talent from area colleges. Complementary programs such as Toast Masters are a great asset.

    I worked at City of Norfolk (Virginia) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with the general public and towards a worthwhile objective. I felt real satisfaction in serving the public and helping others. It was also an instructive experience in bringing together diverse organizations to meet common objectives.

    Cons

    There was almost no communication downstream from those to whom I was assigned to report. I was never evaluated and had no idea how my performance was meeting leadership's objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Core values and objectives should be more than catch phrases. It is OK to communicate with your team. Leading large-scale organizations cannot be done effectively by withholding information and keeping secrets.
