    Pros

    Great place to start a career. This agency will give you a lot of exposure to the technology sector. DoITT has many great people that work tirelessly to keep the City's IT infrastructure running at its best. It's also rewarding to know some of the projects you're working on has a direct impact on people's lives.

    Cons

    Depending on what team you're working in, like anywhere else, it can be a drag. Politics in here can get overwhelming at times. It also seems like people that get paid the most here, do the least. Don't even think about getting a raise here, it's not happening, even if you get picked up for a title. The hoops you must jump through is not even worth it, they don't realize when good employees walk away.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who contribute to the agency. As the market for jobs expand, opportunities lie elsewhere, understand that good people will walk away when you don't do the right thing.

    I worked at NYC Department of IT & Telecom (DOITT) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro for me was that I worked in the same building for 11 years prior to working here. It was a big mistake leaving to come here. I was treated horribly from day one with poor leadership and a cold shoulder.

    Cons

    Upper management is very comfortable and cozy with certain employees. They like who they like , and they get rid of people that they don’t like. I hated the open environment where you’re constantly being watched. It felt like being in a prison. This experience was enough to make me stay out of city government forever.

    Advice to Management

    Can’t really give advice to management because they seem to have he attitude of “know it all”. I can only give advice to those who want more out of their careers. Don’t work here, it’s a waste of time and a robotic environment where you will feel lonely all the time.

    Pros

    Easy work easy hours no one really watching anything anyone does, not sure that's a pro.

    Cons

    Pay is 30-40% below private industry except for the chosen few. Wage inequality is a disgrace. Management for the most part has no technical background. Don't waste your time here. The benefits are not what they use to be.

    Advice to Management

    Retire or learn about technology
