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.
