    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Compressed work week, flex days, ability to bank stat holidays that fall on the weekend, good place to get experience

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. The business units operate as their own areas with no regard to the CIty as a whole. Lots of older senior management that are coasting through to retirement.

    Advice to Management

    The City needs to operate as a complete organization. Business units constantly squabbling over who will pay for what out of departmental budgets is helping no one. Recruiting fresh talent for managerial roles is required.
