    I have been working at Miami full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing pay plus overtime! Amazing benefits package. It can be very rewarding at times. Not as stressful as most people make it seem. Easy job if you know what your doing.

    Cons

    They don't care about the people. It's all the needs of the shift. You basically can't have a personal life outside the four walls of your job. You have to be available 15 hours a day for five days. Unexpected mandatory overtime at times. Management is horrible! You'll spend the next 15 to 20 years trying to get weekends off. Or you'll be on the same shift for years and years. Not worth putting in all that time and missing out on the importance of your personal life especially if you have children and husband or wife to go home to. The pay is great but it's not worth making all that money if you can't see your children grow up.

    Advice to Management

    People skills are a must to know how to deal with all kinds of people. Management should constantly train their supervisors on how to treat people. Get to know your employees before jumping to conclusions.

    Pros

    Vast majority of employees are fantastic. Definitely do not fit the "public employee" reputation. Beautiful office location and nice building.

    Cons

    Administration is too politically influenced, to the point of dysfunction.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone who understands business processes to run the business. Keep the politicians out of the business.

    I worked at Miami full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule, great balance work/life, that's about it!

    Cons

    Very low salaries compare with other similar places, benefits used to be good not anymore, average benefits, no management at all, there's a culture of favoritism and preference among managers and some employees, if you are lucky to be one of the manager's favorite, then you will get all the perks, if not you will be miserable, no opportunity for grow, no promotions in years, lack of incentives.

    Advice to Management

    What management?

    Pros

    Great place to work. Excellent benefits and atmosphere. The City of Miami is great about training and cross training its employees to be able to assist in different departments.

    Politics can sometimes create an upheaval in the structure in which we do business. Transitions in power can be better.

    Pros

    good medical plan, holidays, vacation, work-life balance

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement. Many positions filled by those who are politically connected even though we are under a hiring freeze.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more employee training and easier pathways to promotion.
