    I have been working at City of Baltimore full-time

    Pros

    I love the area I work in and get to do a lot of different things.

    Cons

    Pay is well below average for most jobs even with experience and education
    Raises do not come often and are not on pace with the economy
    Hiring practices vary from agency to agency
    Not a lot of room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Employee appreciation is VERY rare. Many supervisors never thank their staff. We are tasked to do more and more with less resources often with no thanks or a raise.
