    I worked at City of Mesquite part-time

    Pros

    The system of having leads and everyone assigned to jobs works out great.

    Cons

    Sometimes the management you had did not work out for your overall team. They really need to make sure everyone is okay with who the lead is.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone likes the leads that are put into place.
