    I worked at City of Houston full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work was very fulfilling, knowing your daily duties help many in Houston. In my role I got to interact with many people in my department and the work was always varied Day to day. Flex time is great and most supervisors were willing to work w you on your schedule! Benefits ok.

    Cons

    Many levels of bureaucracy to go through to get things done or changed so things can take a long time to get done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep flex schedule and let your younger staff work to problem solve as much as possible!
