    I have been working at Salt Lake City full-time

    Pros

    The Justice Court managers believe in allowing employees to stretch their abilities in order to grow and promote. Open communication is encouraged, and ping-pong is a daily (break-time) activity!

    Cons

    At my level, there isn't anywhere for me to promote to unless someone retires.

    Advice to Management

    Set standards for employees so they have something to achieve.

    Pros

    Supportive staff and flexible hours to work with a student schedule. Additionally had access to participate in many city-wide events.

    I worked at Salt Lake City full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People were wonderful to work with and it gave me the opportunity to learn new things. When I began working for the City, we had a Burroughs mainframe and everything was done a typewriter. When I retired, the City had implemented many Microsoft programs. I was very fortunate to have worked there for over 33 years. I loved my work and loved helping others and being a member of a great team.

    Cons

    My last supervisor was always trying to get me to retire by sabotaging my work. She did the same to another employee who transferred to another department. She recently returned, however, after this supervisor was forced to retire when a new Mayor was elected.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that all employees are treated with respect and if problems arise with that individual, investigate them and do whatever is needed to make their job a pleasant one.

    I worked at Salt Lake City full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits, community services, wide variety of programs.

    Cons

    New change in mayor and City administration every 4 to 8 years.

    Advice to Management

    Need greater focus on and funding for core functions, programs, and services, and related deferred maintenance.

    Competitive pay, good benefits, 401 k, clean work environment, ergonomic evaluations with work area improvements, physical fitness center at my place of work, massage therapists come once a week.

    Cons

    Health insurance premiums are getting very high, some SLC employees are allowed to work four ten-hour days while others are not.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty great, as promised by government work. Cheap insurance, fairly generous pension/401(k), and if you're lucky enough to work at the City and County Building (not me) you get all sorts of things available during your lunch hour, such as chair massages and yoga.

    Cons

    City work is great downtown, but not at the Water Reclamation Plant. Horrendous management that vacillates between micromanagement and utter apathy is rampant. They seem to actively discourage any measures to improve quality of life or positive morale. The plant is well stocked with professional naysayers counting the days to retirement and useless engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at employee turnover vs. management turnover and make changes accordingly.

    I worked at Salt Lake City full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working at the Dept of Airports for Salt Lake City. The pay and benefits are decent for government employees.

    Cons

    The management of the airport and finance divisions can be slow to act. They favor certain people and outside people are regularly brought in above current employees at higher salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and train your employees better

    I have been working at Salt Lake City full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love working for the City of Salt Lake. I have worked here since 2004. Having an opportunity to work with SLC residents is a pleasure.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is tough, depending upon where you work. As one would expect, sometimes the bureaucracy can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to innovate. It can be hard to enact quick change, but there are things that can be done around the edges that can increase efficiency.
