Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at City of Houston full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits, a lot of free time, you get 3 personal days if you dont use sick days, pay is okay.

Cons

pay is way below compared to the corporate world, not enough room for advancement/growth, insurance sucks now that they turned to Cigna, a lot of kiss asses here, go under the heads desk for more money or promotions.

Advice to Management

I liked upper management when i first hired on, but now its just relatives helping each other out, in their own little world. I plan on leaving ASAP.
