    I worked at City of Milpitas full-time

    Pros

    City Hall building is nice. Some people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Short of cooperation between working groups, which most of the time creates internal conflicts, unecessary delays, staffing turn-over, and inconsistent directions from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand employees’ challenges to fully recognize their workload and value their contributions. Be a leader, not a sole manager.

    I have been working at City of Milpitas

    Pros

    Department had been short staffed. Interns were given the code book and were able to run the whole Planning Counter with limited supervision. Given major responsibilities that of a full time staff.

    Cons

    Limited work culture/interaction with other departments let alone the same department. Supervisors too busy to interact, check in with lower position staff.

    Advice to Management

    Check in on staff more regularly, provide assistance to interns through mentor ship.
