    I worked at Gainesville Regional Utilities full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    All joking aside, GRU was a great place to work. I loved interacting with different departments and learning about the structure of city government as well as the utility industry. Great retirement and health benefits.

    Cons

    There was little progression through training and I felt pigeon-holed into my position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look internally for the talent you have in-house and invest in that talent.
