    I worked at City of Lake City (Florida) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Laid back work environment. Management doesn't look over your shoulder to double check what you're working on.
    - Lots of days off. Several paid holidays, plus your birthday, and good time accrual for sick/vacation.
    - Easy to get a job here. Not many positions require education.

    Cons

    - Pay rate is very much below the state average. Management insists is a function of demographics, but nearby counties/cities with similar demographics pay much better.
    - Easy to get a job here. Not many positions require education. Which means a lot of employees aren't so great at their jobs.
    - Questionable work ethic by many employees is supported by upper management. Basically, all the jokes about government inefficiency are woefully true here.
    - This is a great place to work if you aspire to never leave.

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your employees. Particularly the educated ones. They actually know what they're talking about.
    - Listen to the citizens you serve. It's embarrassing to work for a municipality that developers actively avoid trying to do business with.
    - If someone brings up an ethically question activity, research it, lest you perpetuate the "good ol' boy system".
