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

    Pros

    Great Management. Great to work for, salary is competitive for engineers.

    Cons

    There are only a limited number of "positions" in each department, so moving up can be a slow process. Sometimes it feels like if you aren't a close "friend" or not part of the "in crowd", then you can be passed over for a much deserved promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Place value on all employees regardless of "friendship".

    I worked at City of Oklahoma City full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Very diverse workload
    -Most of the people are wonderful
    -Ability to learn a lot about the municipal utility business
    -Met and worked with a lot of great consultants

    I took the job without any prior utility engineering experience and realized I very much love the water/wastewater industry through this job. The City has a great outlook and stays very busy which is nice. It's a fun place to work and learn.

    Cons

    The vast majority of the work falls on a small portion of the staff. If you are one of those getting the good projects it is fun yet stressful at times. It appears that there is no rhyme or reason for promotions, definitely not merit based in my opinion. People get promotions more by who they know. Upper management appears to not care for the people very deeply, simply wants the work done.

    Advice to Management

    Distribute workload more evenly. If people can't carry their fair share they should be let go. People are the greatest asset in this organization and at time it doesn't appear that they care much.

    Pros

    Great benefits and the pay is very competitive with the private sector area jobs. Most of the management is very helpful in getting supplies for task

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication when it comes to sharing information about policy change or creation of new jobs. Some general building task and up keep are not done
