I have been working at City of Austin Texas full-time (More than 8 years)
Job security, lots of room for advancement, ability to transfer to different depts, good pay, great benefits, tuition reimbursement, caring management, great co-workers, accepts weird people, fair treatment, union membership if you want, now civil service -one of the best places I've ever worked & I'm 56 yrs old.
rents are skyrocketing in Austin and City needs to raise our pay so we can afford to live in Austin, pay is not always equal or above market value, but they trying to change this, hard to get overtime in, hard to get to work; tuition reimbursement amount is out of touch with reality of high costs of tuition (only $2000/yr)

Interview was like a question and answer panel. There was myself and 5 other people sitting at the table. I didn't expect to be questioned by 5 people at a rectangle table. It was like a tennis match trying to keep eye contact with different people asking you questions.
