    Nepotism reigns supreme

    Former Employee - Not On Your Life in Newton, MA

    I worked at Newton Massachusetts part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good for part-time.

    Cons

    Nepotism is rampant. Even at the highest levels (non-union), sons and daughters are brought on, when others need the jobs more, probably to make ends meet. Sons and daughters arrive late, leave early, take long lunch breaks, and nothing can be said. Maybe that's just the way it is in government.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is involved in the nepotism. There should be a City ordinance against it unless there is absolutely NO ONE else who can do the job.

    Pros

    opportunities to learn many different aspects of law, plenty of hands on experience available, all the attorneys are very helpful

    Cons

    you are not compensated for your work, but other than that there really isn't too much to be negative about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management is great, very help, maybe try to persuade the aldermen to compensate the interns! other than that, nothing really more to add

    You stay involved because the system pays well, but the people can hold you from achieving full potential.

    I have been working at Newton Massachusetts

    Pros

    Decent pay and easy work, I could have gone back to continue working in the bathhouse (or trained to lifeguard) but it's not worth it.

    Cons

    Boring, boring work, and also it's seasonal. Good summer job for young kids but that's about it. College and older, find a real job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank god they had outside cleaning people do the cleaning, because no way would a bunch of kids do that work.
