I worked at City of Palo Alto, CA full-time

Pros

The pay and benefits were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed working for the City of Palo Alto. The people were awesome and I made a lot of great friends.

Cons

The traffic in the surrounding area can be horrible and its next to impossible to afford rent or a mortgage in the city. Most people live in the East Bay or South Bay then commute. I've heard the Department has been going downhill. A lot of people are jumping ship for other departments.
