I have been working at NYC Information Technology & Telecommunications full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Plenty of holidays
- Average salary for the sector; I've seen a lot worse
- Retention doesn't seem to be a problem

Cons

- Few career growth opportunities, since upper management rarely moves up/out.
- Merit raises are almost non-existent
- Some of the full-timers are quite "unmotivated" and management turns a blind eye to lazy employees

Advice to Management

- Reinforce end-of-year ratings with disciplinary action
- If they are expected to support infrastructure/systems after consultants are gone, engage lower-level full-time employees as stakeholders early on

    I worked at NYC Information Technology & Telecommunications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large complex system to work in with a diverse employee population.

    Cons

    Organization has way too many silos, and in order to advance it's about who you know. Every time a new administration comes into power the vision changes with tons of money going toward service fees for consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Growth is impossible unless you're a member of a click that's in-charge.

    I worked at NYC Information Technology & Telecommunications (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you don't want to work and still get paid, work for the City of NY

    Cons

    Technology and Leadership thinking is archaic.
    Leaders don't trust employees
    You are better off being a contractor than an employee. Being a union employee as a city title but being a manager is the kiss of death. If you become a manager, be sure you fall under the City Manager title an not union
    Ethics don't exist. Common sense doesn't exist. People use corporate terms and REALLY don't understand the true meaning e.g. Agile, PMBOK
    Benefit are the awful compared to corporate. Sure there could be $0 cost, but out of pocket cost will get you. You get what you pay for.
