    I have been working at City of Hickory (North Carolina) full-time

    Pros

    According to our benefit package, we get free parking. I'm not sure where, though.

    Cons

    Pay is not keeping up with inflation. Benefits are dwindling. Duties are unrealistically and unfairly assigned. City management is out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending money on dumb things. A river walk isn't going to generate taxes.
