    I worked at City of Boulder full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Public sector, decent benefits (when they’re actually offered/enforced, people who care and try to do right

    Cons

    Old leadership without opportunities for advancement, really depends on your work group and boss, talk a lot about flex time, remote work and work life balance but don’t actually enforce it, rigid, inefficient, bloated in some areas and understaffed in others, misinformation and hiding things for no reason from employees and public. News always comes out eventually and then there’s bad will. Raises are pathetic and... salaries not liveable, everyone lives outside Boulder and has to drive in. Not a place I can recommend working

    Advice to Management

    Invest in front line staff and technology. Offer real raises. Get rid of bad managers. Tell the truth.
