    Pros

    Insulated from the political rhetoric, good supervision, family environment, respectful coworkers.

    not always up to date on technology, focus on race instead of abilities, political garbage sometimes permeates the departments.

    I have been working at City of Augusta GA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Majority of employees are good people.

    Cons

    Totally under appreciated by the Commission and Administration which trickles down through the levels. Favoritism is definitely an issue everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at who produces results, not by perception but by facts.

    I worked at City of Augusta GA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great hours, State of Georgia Retirement System, will send you to conferences to learn more, many holidays and half days before a holiday. Planning takes place in both Georgia and South Carolina, due to the regional area, so plenty of opportunity to learn and practice regional planning, and understand how to navigate the political and policy climate.

    Cons

    High turnover rate in certain departments, HR understands certain supervisors are horrible but refuses to do anything about them, low industry pay but decent pay for Georgia, very little upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employees, particularly if they lack skills. Hold supervisors and directors to higher standards, or at least industry standards, especially when HR is aware of complaints. Let people use flex time, don't let it be up to directors to play favorites or tyrant with something that should be available to everyone. If people have to work overtime because of staffing issues, pay them for overtime, instead of forcing them to work off the clock, and then blaming them for having to work off the clock, and doctoring timesheets to avoid federal trouble.

    Pros

    Tips, Food, nice facilities and bathrooms, people are very friendly.

    Cons

    Overworked, under payed, did things outside what my position was stated to be multiple times and was left to work on my own frequently while either the boss or co-workers were out of town. Never received proper overtime pay, short lunch breaks and barely any breaks on 8 hour work day. Times to work always changing with no warning until the day or few days before.

    Pros

    Secure and not much else.

    Cons

    Employees who perform the work are loaded upon and others are allowed to roam freely and securely without doing much actual work while the employees with work ethic carry the burden.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize by actual job performance not like it is political. You claim there are no preferred employees but so far from the very non-personal evaluation of each department.
