    I have been working at City of San José full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and the opportunity to make a difference with the community. Flexible work schedule and wonderful upper management. Lots of vacation, holidays and good benefits.

    Cons

    High rate of vacancies so everyone is working with less which is exhausting over time. Change is slow to come and you have to know people across disciplines to find solutions within the system.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to support vacancies and fund much needed support.
