    I have been working at City of Boulder full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The City of Boulder has a lot of great benefits including paid maternity/paternity leave and wellness incentives where by doing healthy things, you can earn up to $150 a year for free! Health and the environment are huge motivators for the City and the culture reflects that. The OSMP (Open Space and Mountain Parks department) is family and pet friendly. The supervisors support a healthy work/life balance and... truly care about the employees. People within all departments of OSMP work hard to collaborate with others. Boulder itself is full of great places to eat and recreate (OSMP being the main "get outdoors" spot), retailers cater to different sports such as running and cycling and there is a very bike friendly network of paths.

    Cons

    Some job positions have recently been looked at to see if the pay and benefits are competitive with other employers in the area. Rangers are required to be Law Enforcement, Wildland Fire fighters and First Responders (minimum) yet do not relieve compensation that acknowledges these duties. The position was compared to other local Ranger groups, the majority of whom do not carry the same responsibilities. High... cost of living in Boulder and surrounding areas. If you are part of the liberal, organic/vegan etc crowd - you will probably be happy here. If your views tend to run toward conservative, this may not be the best place for you. Boulder isn't friendly to traditional religions. People here preach acceptance but only practice this if your views are compatible. Boulder is also very pretentious. There is a lot of money here and it shows both in the million dollar homes as well in the entitled attitudes of many local residents. Long story short - OSMP is great but I really wish it was located somewhere other than Boulder.
