Approves of CEO

I have been working at City of Houston full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Interdepartmental promotions are encoraged, so there's an opportunity to delevop new skills and of course increase your pay. You'll vest in the pension plan after 5 yrs of working there. The health benefits are decent. Union demands across the board pay raises for employees periodically. Typically good work life balance depending on the particular manager or group that you work for.

Cons

Departments operate independently so there's a lack of team efforts as a whole. Office politics drive most decision making regarding personnel. Merit increases are extremely rare.

    I have been working at City of Houston as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very accomodating. Great place to learn about public policy and government affairs. Great place to network.

    Cons

    Unpaid internships. Lack of real integration of interns into the work of the office.

    Advice to Management

    Interns are here to learn but they can also make a valuable contribution. Keeping interns on the side-line makes learning opportunities somewhat limited and prevents them from contributing as much as they could. Maybe paying interns would be a good incentive for both managers to involve interns more and interns to stay implicated.
