    I worked at City of Houston IT Dept

    Pros

    Excellent technical capabilities. Very good work space Large department of 200 + a federated model to outside departments Some excellent management

    Cons

    To many major projects and not enough resources The PMO Office is still young, undermanned and needs an A/D and admin.specialists The CIO is Visionary however doesn't share that across the department There are many internal department and external silos that need to come down. The federated model may need revamping or better direction.

    Advice to Management

    It's all about attitude. The management needs to let the business goals and frontline folks vet out processes and services and then work wit IT to apply the technology. To many departments and division don't get that choice. Back to basics !!!

    Advice to Management

    Catch up to the private sector! You sure do generate enough revenue due to services you charge for (Water, Public Works, HPD writing tickets, Permitting, etc) quit spending needless money and pay the people who actually do the work a more competitive rate.
