    I have been working at City of Seattle full-time

    Pros

    The City is a great place to work. They have great benefits and support employees.

    Pros

    Pros: Benefits including pension and health insurance, culture, meaningful work, public service, opportunities for growth and career advancement.

    Cons

    Salary may not be as competitive as at large tech firms (i.e. Amazon), though with all the benefits and pension plan, it could pay more if you're looking for a longer term career with the City.
