Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Benefits, wages, unions and time off. The usual government perks that most think of when they think public sector employment.

Cons

Some take advantage of the perks of working for the City and it brings down morale for those who have to work with them and pick up the slack. Some departments have a culture of entitlement without excellence. There is an obsession with receiving "due credit" to the extent that nothing gets done unless they are sure to receive the glory for having done it. There are some odd personalities lurking around as well due in part because these individuals cannot really be penalized for not working as team. Lots of "unspoken" rules and regulations. It's a good place to get experience but if you're ambitious and conscientious you will find it hard to excel here. It's seems to be either/or.
