        I worked at City of Atlanta full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Lots of opportunities to grow unless you are at the top. Too much politics at the top.

        Cons

        Not enough budget allocated to get everything as up-to-date as necessary for IT. The base budget needs to be increased.

        Advice to Management

        Invest in training the staff to use the new technologies that are introduced.

              Pros

              Free food at the H2O Oscars.

              Cons

              Low pay. No raises or cost of living pay adjustments. I work with people who have not received any increase in pay for over a decade. Too cliquish. Too much hiring of friends and family from outside rather than promoting qualified workers from within. Too many promotions based on who you know and not what you know. A position will be posted with an expiration date then removed less than 24 hours later because they...

              Advice to Management
