What are perks and other benefits like at City of Fort Worth, Texas?

Pros

Ive been with the city for many many years. Ive worked in 3 different departments. One was bad, the 2nd one was hell, this one it remains to be seen but I hope that if I steer clear of the factions and dont become an active participant of the drama, I'll be mostly okay and have a drama free stay at the new department I am in. Pros of working with the city: 1. If you interview well, you will be transfered. Doesnt matter what you have done or how many disciplinary actions you have against you. They will transfer you if you score the highest in the interview. 2. This organization has a lot of unspoken perks. Fast leave accrual, opportunities for overtime, tons of downtime (in certain departments, heck, even at times in the departments which are buried in work), free food (in certain instances, during certain events, certain programs, at certain times of the year, etc), and tons more. 3. Many opportunities to attend training, classes, seminars, and workshops during work hours. 4. The ability to just easily gain experience on equipment, software, and in fields of work that you may be aspiring to advance to (there are some upsides to working for a disorganized organization, cross training is one of them). 5. The employee discount program

Cons

The drama. Its inescapable. You literally just have to know how to shut yourself off to these peoples bullcrap while still interacting with them to get the job done. Its taxing. The communication between management. Gets an F. Its non-existant.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the dinosaurs on both the employee and management level . You know, the lifers who have 20+ years in. Most are stuck in their ways and not open to change. Make this organization an at-will employer. There are way too many passes given. Too much abuse and corruption that is just swept under the rug. Quit choosing rude people and gutter trash over nice honest folks that have some education under their belt. And lastly, put a bottom employee on an interview panel once and awhile. Especially if its an interview panel for someone in management. And no, not some bottom employee who has 25 years in and is friends with all of upper management. No, a regular employee keeps the whole department running, one who is out in the field. And one who isnt up management's you-know-what.
