    I have been working at Fort Worth full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large city with a small town feel. Job offered opportunities for travel and training. A lot of opportunity to work with cross functional teams on different projects. Plenty of opportunities to earn compensatory time for extra hours worked.

    Cons

    Salaries are a little below average compared to peers. No over-time pay! Some of the facilities and equipment needs updating.

    I have been working at Fort Worth full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. If it wasn't for my coworkers I wouldn't be working here.

    Cons

    Overloaded on work with lots of vacant positions. City hall will not fill openings. High cost insurance. No pay raises in 5 years. Doesn't matter how hard or how little you work, your pay is your pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Competitive wages with private sector. Listen to your employees because you don't have a clue.

    I worked at Fort Worth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large City with multiple departments to find which one fits you best

    Cons

    "Pigeon-hole" effect in numerous departments, devaluing of education as a qualifying factor for positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the "shining stars" of the organization and grow them or else they will become frustrated and leave.

    I have been working at Fort Worth

    Pros

    very good benefits, high turnover creates frequent opportunities for lower-level professional staff to move up; City Council and management seem concerned about employee morale; oil shale drilling and relatively strong local economy support the tax base and the city's overall stability

    Cons

    antiquated financial and HR systems; overall inefficiency and poor use of up-to-date management tools or processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve HR functions and systems
