    I worked at Dallas (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, promotional opportunities, many great friendships.

    Cons

    'Smokestack' communications- information tends to flow one direction only. Decisions from management are not always timely. City council tends to meddle in some departments instead of allowing chain of command to function.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications and actively seek input from staff.

    Very political, alot of nepotism. You aren't hired based in experience but based more on "who you know "

    Hire adequate employees instead of unqualified family members of employees. Give people with adequate experience the oppurtunity to be hired.
