I have been working at City of Houston full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

At one time, great benefits as a tradeoff for poor salary. In bad financial times, the city did not WANT to afford to give raises, so they provided better benefits (vacation days, pension, etc).

Cons

When times are tough, the city attacks benefits and forgets why we received them. The city is quick to forget deals they make for political reasons. You work for over 20+ years with the understanding of what's at the end-of-the road.. then, they change the deal.

Advice to Management

Stop electing the people you do for Mayor and City Council.

    I worked at City of Houston full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with different departments, good exposure to different work areas, hepls you develop professionally, build partnerships with external agencies

    Cons

    Lower salary is part of city job, high stress environment, slow at adapting to new projects or demands, overworked employees, low morale. Very political work environment and people who "kiss ass" to get promoted (even if they don't deserve such promotion). Shady and untrustworthy employees. Not good for overall career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees' concerns, show your appreciation for employees, be open to new ideas and changes that can help your department be more successful. Open communication is necessary in working in a successful office, be more open with your employees. Be considerate of ALL your employees, whether or not you have a favorite. Employee morale is important to the overall productivity of the office.
