Great place for diversity and a secure future

Administrative Specialist II (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsWorking for the City of Seattle can provide you with a very good salary and a good retirement if you can manage to bypass the frequent budget cuts. I found that there is a great mix of people from so many backgrounds and often, very friendly office environments. And if you have the right manager, you will be able to work on projects outside your title and class and may be moved along for promotions.

ConsYou really need a manager you are in sync with to move upward in the City. If you don't have this, it can be difficult to move ahead or out of a specific title.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink outside of the box and cross train employees so that they have more opportunities to move ahead.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
