    I worked at City and County of San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inflated salary, average work hours

    Cons

    Salary takes a hugh hit from pension; SF is on a 2 tier system whereby the costs of the pension fall on the employee, including benefit costs. I was taking home less than what I was previously making despite having a 10% increase!

    Advice to Management

    Cut the red tape; the city makes it nearly impossible to get things done; no cooperation between departments; no ability to grow and learn....you die inside if you remain with the city

    I worked at City and County of San Francisco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - No real challenge, employees are not pushed in any way to do more than is necessary.
    - Convenient location, close to BART and Muni stops
    - Close to All Star Donuts
    - Great discounts on See's Candy

    Cons

    - No real challenge, employees are not pushed in any way to do more than is necessary.
    - countless layers of bureaucracy, I've worked for several gov't agencies, this one was the worst
    - Top heavy organization

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, listen to union members/reps. Encourage community among employees. Appearances are not that important.
