I have been working at City of Palo Alto, CA full-time (More than 3 years)
The people that work here are amazing. The benefits are good. They leverage new technologies to make the work environment fun, engaging, and efficient.
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.
I applied online. I interviewed at City of Palo Alto, CA (Palo Alto, CA) in March 2017.
Submitted resume, a month later I was asked to come in for an in person interview. Panel interview with project manager, very professional and friendly. Asked a couple of questions about why and how I came to be interested in this field and previous projects I had worked on.
