Good place to work - good culture with well meaning people

Executive II (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at City of Seattle full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood smart people, wanting to provide good service. Reasonable benefits, although once pay is set, can be hard to get increases.

ConsDifficult to implement change. Can be disillusioning to see how the sausage gets made at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower employees to make change, add input and incentive work (not necessarily with $$).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
