    I have been working at NYC Department of IT & Telecom (DOITT) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Great exposure to some cutting edge technology -When fellow employees band together in an emergency situation, the best in people shine through

    Cons

    -Extremely bureaucratic, multiple layers of approval for outside agency projects while the outside agency waits, and waits -Efforts to tackle a problem across multiple teams/divisions is chaotic, trouble tickets get bounced around from group to group like a hot potato with an attitude of "not my problem", meanwhile a requesting agency with the issue is left in the dark -Low pay compared to other IT peers, even... among other agencies, we are paid among the lowest with zero discretionary salary increases

    Advice to Management

    -Encourage cross team bonding and relationship building, if a DoITT employee is having trouble with one of their own projects or systems, it is close to hell to try and get assistance from another group for help -Reduce reliance on ITCS consultants and SI's. Big morale killer when you know someone is making more than double your hourly rate for doing the same work, and is trusted more than an FTE. -Establish... DoITT's presence in the City as the leading IT services provider for our peer agencies, and as such, we need to be staffed accordingly

    I worked at NYC Department of IT & Telecom (DOITT)

    Pros

    Steady paycheck - given the current recession - less chances of being laid off -but, that all depends who you work for. Just have the mentality .... Punch in and punch out.

    Cons

    Lack of advancement - Low Pay - as other have said -it's municipal government - so don't expect much from management. The attitude of management "Don't like it - leave!!!" ...A middle ages type of mentality - so if you do decide to work here - broker as much money as you can before you join - there are no salary increases or advancement (very rare)

    Advice to Management

    None - it's a system that has been in place for years with little change. If you are fortunate to work for a good manager than great- if not - you are on your own....

    I have been working at NYC Department of IT & Telecom (DOITT)

    Pros

    No overtime - when it's time to punch out and go home - you do just that. You do your hours and you go home. If you have to do overtime - they are required to pay for that...

    Cons

    As with most municipal agencies - very low pay (think of the book "nickle and dimed") and very little chance of advancement. The situation is like the middle ages (once a "serf" always a "serf")- you are stuck at your job title for life. However, you can do well -but, it all depends who you work for and what salary you are able to negoitiate. They are very rare circumstances where one can advance;but, don't hold... your breathe on it...

    Advice to Management

    Deonds on how is in charge and who is willing to listen. It's civil service so sometimes not much will happen regarding any time of feedback. The attitude can be in some circle is that "If you don't like things - you are free to leave" kind of mindset.
