I have been working at Miami

Pros

Miami has a good benefits package, inclusive of a pension program and comprehensive medical benefits. Goverment discounts are also available to City employees.

Cons

The nepotism and cronism in the City of Miami is at an all time high. Over qualified people are looked over for positions that under qualified people are being hired for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow the experts in their respective fields do their job. You hire competent people so you don't have to DO their work for them.

    I have been working at Miami full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay rate in municipal government is better than state. Lots of employees will retire soon creating advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    The morale is on the ground due to the lay offs incurred by the crash of the economy in 2009. There are a lot of overpaid secretary/reception types who are lazy and do not work and stay that way because the unions protect them. This is not productive and can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find those with institutional knowledge and ask, listen and learn. (if there are any left)

    I worked at Miami full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Vast majority of employees are fantastic. Definitely do not fit the "public employee" reputation. Beautiful office location and nice building.

    Cons

    Administration is too politically influenced, to the point of dysfunction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find someone who understands business processes to run the business. Keep the politicians out of the business.
