    Positive Outlook

    I worked at City of Boulder part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This position gave me a chance to gain invaluable, degree related experience with extensive, patient supervision while finishing my university degree. Employees seemed happy and welcomed the opportunity to help me and the work was challenging and varied.

    Cons

    The pay is low for these types of positions and as turnover in the city staff is low (due to happy employees) there is little opportunity to be hired upon graduation from college.

    I worked at City of Boulder for more than a year

    Pros

    City staff are generally very friendly, inclusive, and eager to explain how city operations work. Through my time at the city I was able to gain many technical and reporting skills that would be useful for my future career.

    Cons

    Due to the high employee retention rate at the city, there is limited ability for continued or upward employment opportunities for interns. Office facilities are dated and at some times space limited.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to interns what potential opportunities may arise at the city in the next few years.

    I worked at City of Boulder for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved working here. The staff are friendly and I got to workout for free. My supervisor was one of the coolest guys I've ever met.

    Cons

    I had no car so had to rely on public transportation to get around. Not too terrible if you live in Boulder, but I was commuting from Aurora to Denver and then Denver to Boulder (there and back every day)
