    I have been working at City of Palo Alto, CA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people that work here are amazing. The benefits are good. They leverage new technologies to make the work environment fun, engaging, and efficient.

    Cons

    Change is a very slow process and sometimes frustrating. Decisions are made only by upper management and staff cannot be trusted in their view. If you have an idea to make something more efficient, your idea will not be heard.
