Pros

The benefits; the work schedule; the community involvement; colleagues; good work life balance; some managers allow you some flexibility to implement projects that will support the community

Salary; little opportunity for growth; some areas afraid of growth or change; no bonuses; departments seem to work independently

Advice to Management

Support your staff and consider bonuses outside of merit raises for extra effort

    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.
