    Pros

    We have great benefits and a pension. Someone starting out in life can get a wealth of experience and knowledge just from working for the city. There have been opportunities for promotion.

    Cons

    The pay is just okay. We have not really gotten any raises for several year now. The cost of health coverage gobbles up the small 2 or 3 percent raise you may get on an annual basis. Cost of living raises never happen working for the city.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to your management
