    Pros

    The City has some decent benefits.

    Cons

    IF you like working in the IT field do not come to work here. IT and IT Security are horribly run. IT is very siloed, micromanaged, and underpaid. There is a considerable lack of knowledge about how to manage IT and Security. Security management lacks the skills and real world experience for a business this size. There are plenty of other opportunities in the DFW area IT field, keep looking.
