    I have been working at City of Seattle

    Pros

    Work life balance is pretty good. People are good to work with.

    Cons

    Things can take longer to move. Sometimes more politics than you would care and IT positions are unionized

    I worked at City of Seattle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, although the benefits were far more expensive than needed. Other places pay much less for the same benefits....

    Cons

    I left an executive position behind because I was mislead about the position. I later found out they lied and every project was on fire beyond rescue, when they told me they were great. Was told a promotion would happen right away. Turns out all the other new hires were told the same thing and none of it was true... The management in IT was junior at best. The IT consolidation was a disaster. I found a lot of the managers were hired with no previous experience for their roles by friends and family. They key to moving up here is to outlast everyone. In 20 years, you can be a Director. Mind you the people with talent will make executive for far more pay in far less time and will actually earn it on merit. HR is mediocre. Protects lazy and bad behavior such as peers yelling and practically challenging each other to fight, etc. No accountability whatsoever. Long time employees can do whatever they want without any repercussions, they are Royalty protected by HR. Waste of tax payer dollars.

    Advice to Management

    None, they are too inept to listen anyways.
