    I have been working at Newark, New Jersey full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Convenient hours, decent benefits and all major holidays off. Employer is close to home making for an easy commute. Not too bad.

    Cons

    Stagnant salary. Opportunities for upward mobility limited. Being government, must deal with political red tape at times which may delay workflow.

    Realized that good employees doesn't mean pile on the work of other individuals in order to get things done. It's OK to go above and beyond at times but not everyday and not well above and beyond.

    Pros

    Everyone at City Hall is friendly and willing to help in any way they can, especially when you're a new intern. The law department is a very interesting place to work.

    Cons

    I was often not busy enough, and isolated from the rest of the office. I believed that my supervisors should have been more directly involved with my work.
