I worked at Colorado Springs Utilities full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Rewarding local government job with great benefits

Cons

Understaffed for many positions, making work/life-balance difficult to maintain

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an eye on inappropriate relationships between different levels of supervision; my experience was that the cozy state of the chain of command made it difficult for lower-level employees to resolve important issues or to be more actively involved in providing input on current operations.
