Negative Outlook

I worked at City of San José full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The City of San Jose has great employees and their benefits are pretty great, too. There was a nice family atmosphere in the area in which worked.

Cons

Politics gets in the way too much, and it was disheartening to see so many really great people loose their jobs.

Advice to Management

Stand up for the people who work under you.

    Pros

    Relatively high pay for public sector, potential to change positions with internal hires/transfers, flexible work schedules and start times, good for work-life balance, no overtime (unless that is a regular part of your position)

    Cons

    High turnover, many layers of management, benefits rapidly decreasing. Like many public sector jobs right now, there is a mix of newer to government work employees and quite a few employees just waiting until retirement.


  2. "not the best experience"
