I have been working at City of Tampa full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Able to do all sorts of things, not isolated to one type of technology.
None of the leads breaths down your throat, but you MUST be able to work on your own.
The people are wonderful, and everyone is willing to share their expertise.

Cons

You must be motivated, if you are not, you are pushed aside.
Tendency to throw new people in an office and expect them to get started without any type of orientation.
People tend to believe City employees are overpaid and underworked, neither of which is true.
Health insurance is bad, but at least we have it.

Advice to Management

come up with a better program to help ensure success.

    I worked at City of Tampa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Director has greatly changed the direction of the department. It is fast paced with lots of changes happening as new staff is added.

    Cons

    Union and HR place road blocks. Some internal strife and subversion.

    Advice to Management

    The union is not always right.

    Pros

    Modern equipment, excellent training opportunities and large assortment of department resources. It has a full spectrum of assignments and specialities including K9, Mounted Patrol, EOD, TRT, Air Service, Marine Patrol, Narcotics Units, CSI and a myriad of others. Excellent 20 and Out private pension plan with ability to DROP after 20 years. 3.15% per year multiplier up to 100%. Plus optional deferred comp plan.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities narrow drastically as you move up. There is still a good old boy system that permeates promotion process. If you are a member of an effected class you have more opportunities even if you are less qualified (which could be a Pro for some people).
