    I have been working at City of Sacramento full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn and great bunch of guys to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate cross training between disciplines to allow a better understanding for each craft so they can better diagnose and service each job.
