I have been working at City of Seattle full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great professional employee support along with a group of "new" emerging public servants. This is a great place to make a difference in your community. The city is becoming more forward-looking and efficient.

Cons

There is less support for less-skilled workers. There is the perception that the local government employees are entitiled and less productive than private sector workers so be preopared to deal with that.

    I worked at City of Seattle as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    An inside look at a major utility.
    Plenty experience with the power side of electrical engineering.
    AutoCad experience.
    The pay is decent.
    Many co-workers are eager to help you.

    Cons

    The work order process, on the program made by oracle, is confusing. It can be boring sometimes. The HR department take a very long time to get back to you. There are a lot of work politics, but as an intern, they don't really affect you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training for programs that are new to the interns.
