Pros

Benefits are great, and you’re working for the betterment of our city—not just lining the pockets of the 1% /Venture Capitalists. Some managers/department heads really understand the need to modernize and move processes forward, and working on those projects definitely makes me feel like my work is making a difference.

Cons

Hiring process for full-time employment is lengthy, opaque, and seems far too arbitrarily specific in many cases. There’s a lot of calcified employees and departments worth of unbelievable inefficiencies. So that’s either fertile ground for improvement or a lot of banging your head against the brick walls set up to thwart any kind of change. Things just happen at a slower pace here.

Advice to Management

Make ongoing learning and skill development a part of the ongoing operations in each department. Keeping everyone’s skill sets more current and useful together, mingling the older employees with the newer ones not only helps everyone get on the same page, but also helps to facilitate intergenerational transfer of institutional knowledge that should be passed down. Make employee “off-boarding” an integral component of work life - documenting how a role functions, jobs get done, processes and procedures and more all through the employee’s tenure so that it’s not rushed at the end or just neglected completely.
