    I have been working at City of Arlington, TX full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with outside of IT and good management overall.

    Cons

    Do not. I repeat do not come here to work in IT. The environment is completely toxic.

    Advice to Management

    To city management : do yourself a favour and find a good cio. The one you currently have is more worried about interior design and redecorating than the technology strategy of the city. He also does not properly understand cjis or how cjis systems interact with the city as a whole.

    Good benefits and opportunities once hired

    Cons

    Low morale; employees were pretty negative and voiced it openly

    Provide more training and support employees who are unhappy and want to transfer to other departments. And when employee morale is low, change it. Listen to your employees and ensure there are no egregious repercussions.

    Pros

    Can't think of a lot. Hours aren't good, you are expected to volunteer at every City event. They will wear you out.

    You are at the customers beck and call. You will never be right, even if they lie about you.

    Advice to Management

    Have your employee's back.
