    There is ample paid time off, especially after having worked with the city for several years. The pension plan is great.

    I was only seasonal so I did not receive a insurance plan.

    the best thing would be the ability to move around to different departments until you find one you like. The cons would be that there isn't enough oversight of poor supervisors/managers, its really political and the benefits are NOT what they use to be. The pay is not very comparable to private so in the past good benefits made it workable but those days are gone now.

    I do not have the insurance plan, however, I only hear negative things about it from others who do; having to get "points" for certain things for employee & spouse; cost of insurance; etc.

    Good health, dental and vision insurance. High deductibles

    Insurance rates and deductibles are significantly better than if you were to buy an individual plan. That is if you were to select limited plan which is equivalent to HMO. There are also supplemental plans available.
