    Good and Bad of City Work

    Jul 11, 2022 - Water Meter Reader

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    HR / central office staff typically more savvy than then outlying departments. But if you report something being amiss, HR will take the report but cannot necessarily help you day to day after the problem ends.

    Cons

    Most workers want to do their job and go home. And some really do want to serve the public. Not ideal but City's bureaucracy generally gives them that opportunity.
