I have been working at City of Rowlett full-time
Rowlett is very relaxed when it comes to dress codes, hair color, tattoos, piercings, etc. Very strong wellness program and good camaraderie. Pay is on the higher end for my department compared to other cities. Management allows professional growth and skill enhancing opportunities through conferences and opportunities through work such as training programs.
Very hard to move up because the City is just now getting to a point where having enough positions to advance is a reality. Reclassification is hard and takes time and bonuses don't occur. No overtime/comp time for salaried employees even when required to attend many night meetings.
