    I worked at Town of Oyster Bay full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lot of departments! Easy to move around "til you find that perfect fit. Nobody wants to spend their entire day surrounded by old, gossiping women, which could easily happen here. Thankfully, I was able to check out three of four different spots, when I finally found a perfect fit. Of course, there's always one person, but I can honestly say that (besides that one), I honestly enjoyed working with everyone in my... last position. I would definitely have stayed if personal circumstances didn't dictate that I move to another state.

    Cons

    Very politically ruled. It's all about who you know!!! Additionally (and because of this), too many of the wrong people have too much power. They seem to attract mean, spiteful, immature supervisors, who like flexing their muscles and disrupting work more than overseeing a smooth flow of operation.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your Deputies! I know of one in particular who went rogue. Ruined my experience with the Town until I was fortunate enough to move to a different department and a much more mature Deputy.
