    Pros

    The line managers and support staff are good. Overall, benefits are very good. Salaries lower than commensurate-level private sector jobs, but that's to be expected.

    Cons

    Some department heads are not as invested in outcomes & day-to-day workings of their departments as they should be, given that it's a reasonably small organization. Upper level management is about 50% -- some are "working" department heads and know their divisions well, others rely too heavily on line staff.

    Advice to Management

    Yes, you have to play politics -- it's part of working at a small City Hall. At the same time, you need to consider appropriate Customer Service for your citizens -- and professional growth for your staff. More work is needed on both counts.
