    I have been working at City of Mississauga Canada full-time

    Pros

    Salary & benefits are excellent. Schedule is reasonably flexible (but depends on your job). Lots of opportunities if you want to make a difference. Always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be an issue, depending on your job. Like in any company, there can be weak performers that fly under the radar but, because the City is a public-sector entity, there is less incentive to remove them (although the City is not afraid to terminate the worst offenders and is doing this with increasing regularity).
