I worked at City of San José full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

There are several highly motivated and intelligent managers and senior managers who appreciate the effort put forth from their employees. If you are fortunate enough to land a permanent position with the City, you will be set for life.

Cons

You need to be able to work around slackers - if you are highly motivated and self-driven it can be very discouraging working with people who have forgotten for whom they work, i.e. the public.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to start keeping documentation on employees who do not perform their jobs with competence. A lot of time is wasted on non-business chatting; pay attention to your employees' work output - if they know their manager is looking over their work, they should get the message. Good luck!

    I have been working at City of San José part-time

    Pros

    Children love to have fun and co-workers are awesome.

    Cons

    There is a lot of planning you have to do and sometimes children get picked up really late and that is something you have no control of. You are also limited to about 1,040 hours a year so once you max out you're out of a job until it starts over again.
