    The job is very challenging and there is a lot of variety. The work days go by very quickly.

    There can be a lot of distractions when trying to do very technical work. Often deal with people who are upset with their values.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at City of Moorhead full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are for the most part great to work with. The environment is ever-changing so it keeps things interesting each day/year. Personally I love what I do which is hard to say in previous employment. Schedule is flexible so if you have a family or school age kids with programs, doctor appointments, etc you can make things work. My manager is great and works with us very well. Jobs are very stable as the chances of the school district going under are slim.

    Cons

    Compensation is less than market value in some areas, but nobody goes to work at a school to get rich. Benefits are good, but only if you are a teacher. If you are not a teacher, benefits become very expensive, especially if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    I have recommended employment at the district to numerous friends. However if they have a family and require the use of that friend's insurance I need to make sure they are aware of what they are walking into. This is one area that dramatic changes are needed.
