    Pros

    Job stability is comforting. No worries about a company layoff brings piece of mind financially. Industry monopoly in this community.

    Cons

    Not employee oriented. Low morale. Company feels it's too big to fail and uses its position and size to intimidate employees instead of motivating employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Value their opinions.

    Pros

    Stable jobs
    Great benefits, especially after 5 years
    If you do your expected work you can enjoy independence for the most part

    Cons

    General negatives due to being a municipality - overdone and bizarre politics, red tape everywhere, illusion of doing work is often more important than actual work

    Advice to Management

    Relax the culture a bit, bring more activities and minor fringe benefits to improve morale
