    I worked at Nashville, TN full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Civil Service - Somewhat. When they follow the rules that they set it's helpful to protect people. Good benefits package and a pension. plan (once vested.. and (f it lasts)

    Cons

    Metro has several different departments. Each departments leadership is different. Some great... some not. My review is for ITS (Information Technology Services) where I was employed for almost 10 years. When I started the employees were given the tools they needed to do a great job and people were happy. Nashville ranked in the top 10list of Microsoft's Digital cities. The department has unfortunately become a bureaucracy run by nothing other than politicians driven only by the advisement of corporate auditors. Management fails to realize that if they listened and worked with their people instead of brushing them aside that things would run smooth and there would be no need for auditors. The work environment has become toxic where co-workers are put against each other so they can suck up to even be considered for promotion. The people (now) being placed in charge are there only because they they are yes men/women. Talent and technical aptitude mean nothing if you don't play the game. In the last year they have run off a record number of long term employees who were a true asset to the organization. Poor management costs the citizens of Davidson County money.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people. Recognise that just because you were put in charge byt the powers that be , you don't know everything. Your decisions should be made on the advice of your team... the ones who do the work every day and deal with issues first hand. Create a positive work environment where people are motivated to sucede rather than try to survive in a cut throat environment.

    I have been working at Nashville, TN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Service to a public truly in need

    Cons

    Very few; the primary "con" is the failure of management to practice Robert Greenleaf's philosophy of servant leadership

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that employees are provided resources they need and that management is accountable to them.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Most of the coworkers are nice. It has been a learning experience in how government can move at a snails pace.

    Cons

    Department heads are political appointments. There is no advancement opportunities. Professional certifications (CPA, CIA,etc) are not awarded or encourage. Pay is lower than private sector accountants. Management does not listen to employee work concerns.
