Pros

Staff is friendly. Work is important. You are a part of a dynamic system that supports the city of San Francisco.

Cons

Many projects at once so your focus area might not get due attention all the time -- but that's expected for a department that serves such a large region. Slightly bureaucratic system but not enough to drive you crazy like other places.

    I worked at San Francisco Department of Public Health

    Pros

    Work on interesting projects that can have a real impact and help people. Location is near a BART station and park and weekly farmer's markets. Workers all friendly and welcoming. Some leniency for you to explore projects on a deeper level if you are interesting in pursuing something more challenging.

    Cons

    Sudden budget cuts can lead to near immediate and unexpected job losses, hard to advance, low pay, some lack of respect for people in the lesser job positions. Lots of bureaucracy for most anything you want to do. Not a lot of feedback on work product, easy to get burned out because you work hard and other people may just be doing the bare minimum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more cohesive plans for projects and make sure everyone is on the same page before changing midstream.
