    Pros

    unbeatable benefits & pension, hard to get fired, city likes to promote from within.

    Cons

    dept director played favorites and promoted her "pets" while failing to appreciate the employees who actually did all the hard work. lots of office politics with tattletelling and gossiping. only relevant for 1 dept but makes me not want to go back to this city.

    Advice to Management

    learn to be fair to your employees, especially those who work hard and make your dept successful, rather than spending your time gossiping and promoting those who kiss your butt. learn to handle your employees so you get the most of each qualified employee.

    Pros

    AMAZING benefits. Friendly, supportive atmosphere. Great geographical location. Very fair, if not generous, wages/salaries.

    Cons

    Hard to move up if you start at a bottom level position. Serving a diverse public like the residents of Santa Monica can be very challenging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate talent from within the organization more effectively than is done now.
