    I worked at City of Palm Beach Gardens, FL full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, generous days off, discounts on services.

    Cons

    Lots of politics involved. Job openings are not fair, often those in City Hall have an idea of who they want for the job and strong-arm that decision.

    Advice to Management

    Practice ethics and transparency.

    Pros

    Very friendly community atmosphere. However, I am biased, I grew up in Palm Beach Gardens and love it here. Saying that I would still recommend the city as a great place to work for.

    Cons

    It's a city government so there is a lot of beuacracy and inefficiency. Management can sometimes be indirect, but that is not frequently and most the times it is great.

    Advice to Management

    Things could be streamlined a bit more. I feel there are too many people overseeing little things. If you empowered your employees they would willingly take the responsibility.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at City of Palm Beach Gardens, FL full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent health plan and unbelievable retirement package. Exceptional City Manager and an extremely effective city government has delivered a beautiful community through their Planning and Zoning office. Parks and Recreation, Fire and Police are also award-winning and nationally recognized. Nice Municipal Complex located in the heart of a thriving community with outstanding retail and restaurant venues. Managers and human resources are sincerely interested in protecting the employees and making sure they are happy with their jobs. Very rare these days!

    Cons

    Although the population has ballooned to 50,000, can still feel very much like you are working for and in a small town. Issues/problems being worked on and sometimes feel minor or provincial.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
