    Pros

    PTO days off, Benefits are ok, stable work , Pension plan is Ok. Flexible if needed for appointments, coworkers are nice

    Waste. Inefficient HR employees that do not know what they are doing. Most are long time employees,surprised with their government mentality, lazy and everything they do takes more time than it should. Learn how to hire the right people

    Do your job efficiently like you are paid to do

    I have been working at City of Coral Gables part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible with hours. free Venetian Pool entrance. great summer job

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians and with that hope enough is said to understand. too many hires not enough hours. City is under budget (who would've thought) doesn't pay their employers well enough.

    Advice to Management

    Push harder for City to pay your employers better

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

    Pros

    Great health benefits.
    Lots of PTO and Holidays.
    Beautiful city to work in. Lots of great food and places to go after work.
    Tuition reimbursement.
    Parking perks.
    Making friends with the Police and Fire Department also has its perks.
    Most employees are generally nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Salary for most non-public-safety positions is well below private sector salaries for comparable positions.
    Raises have been reduced or eliminated.
    Opportunity for advancement is non-existent.
    17% mandatory salary contribution before taxes to retirement fund for non-exempt employees, 15% for exempt.

    Advice to Management

    You're never going to attract or retain talent worthy of this historic city by continuing to treat its employees as expendable cost centers.

    Pros

    The City hires very qualified people, and therefore we have a great team. We have a sophisticated community, and challenging and engaging projects to work on. We are passionate about the community and continuing to improve it. The weather is also great!

    Cons

    There are not many cons to working here. Restructuring the organizational chart recently is helping to eliminate some prior inefficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    The City has a lot of talented people.
