I have been working at City of Orlando

Pros

Great place to learn the art of communication, and to become comfortable and confident in managing people, and public

Cons

Political savy is a must for survival. Its all about who you know. Innovation is not often rewarded. Riddled with pettiness and lacking conviavility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement a performance bonus structure
More effort into education

    I have been working at City of Orlando full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The city you serve is beautiful. Shifts are 24-on 48-off. Dept. is large enough for promotions. Pay is reasonable for the area.

    Cons

    Might get stuck in a bus for a year to 18 month. Might have to put up with older set mentalities where senior guys might not like change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the management I would say they are the one responsible for the culture within the department. so, motivating those around you to progress in there field of practice, ie, medics and firefighters. To seek more advancement within their career.

    I have been working at City of Orlando as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The absolute best thing about working for the City is that you get recognize that you "WORK" for the City of Orlando.

    Cons

    The main Challenge for me personally, it's hard to get ahead because of personal feelings toward individuals. Too many "cliques". I feel as though certain people in HR are looking for friends to move ahead in the career advancement and not very good candidates. There needs to be some shuffling around and some new eager leadership roles should be in place to make it a truly an Equal Opportunity work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop having "Tunnel Vision". You may have gems right under your noses that's ready for a chance to prove themselves worthy.
