      Pros

      Benefits are meh. Pay is comparable to other municipalities.

      Cons

      Retirement plan is horrible. Management is all ‘phoning it in’ as they’re all just waiting to retire and therefore do not appear to have a true interest in what’s going on. No room for growth, even in middle management. No opportunities to attend conferences or educational events. Employees who are being abused by supervisors are swept under the rug. Intimidation and threats of retaliation.

      Pros

      All the holidays off balance work/life Employees are hard-workers.

      Cons

      I worked for the City of Houston as an Intern for a month, then I was asked to come onboard as a contract worker promising a guarantee employment after I graduated from college. The City of Houston is known for a steady job and benefits. Well, the benefits are no longer what they used to be. " Steady employment, " means there is no room for growth unless you are one of the "favorite upper-management employees." Try applying for a job with the City and see if you'll receive a call, or email back, even if you have applied 15 times ! City of Houston works on the " good 'ole boy system. " Even if you are qualified your application will never get to the hire manager before COH employees relatives. If you are one of the lucky ones to land a job with City, please learn as much as you can and RUN !
