Pretty good place to work

I worked at City of San José

Pros

Relatively high pay for public sector, potential to change positions with internal hires/transfers, flexible work schedules and start times, good for work-life balance, no overtime (unless that is a regular part of your position)

Cons

High turnover, many layers of management, benefits rapidly decreasing. Like many public sector jobs right now, there is a mix of newer to government work employees and quite a few employees just waiting until retirement.

    I worked at City of San José full-time (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!
