I worked at City of Houston full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The City of Houston provides excellent training, company values, benefits, parking incentives and competitive pay.

Cons

Administrative and/or office personnel are not recognized in a timely manner when it comes to promotions within the company. As a result, they are relocated or passed over to fill vacancies and not rewarded.

Advice to Management

Office staff members are the right hand to upper management. They work selfishly to accommodate management and are expected to maintain daily operations of the office. Without us, the office would not run as smoothly.

    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.
