Trainer/Training Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Denver, CONovember 12, 2017
I enjoyed my time at the City and County of Denver. Unfortunately the last two years I was there the department was headed by an unskilled manager that was a bully. Fortunately I was not bullied, but the environment was toxic.

Progressive and advanced government agency
Associate Developer (Former Employee) –  Denver County, CONovember 7, 2017
I worked in the central IT department. I encountered many hardworking, knowledgeable individuals that were fun to work with and consistently professional. The stereotypical image of half witted, lazy government employee does not apply in this case.Many of the most intelligent, self motivated, effective people I've ever met work for the City & County of Denver.
Pros
Job security, plenty of training and opportunity to grow
Cons
Sometimes there were too many bureaucratic layers of red tape to implement quick, intuitive, cost effective solutions.

Electronic Monitoring Officer (Current Employee) –  Denver, COOctober 21, 2017
You work hard for every penny you make. I learned a lot about work place politics working at this agency. Management leaves much to be desired. Work place culture is dog eat dog and there is little work life balance. The most enjoyable aspect of the job is helping those who want to be helped.

Not much room for advancement in the position I held.
Stockkeeper I (Former Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 27, 2017
In my opinion, management in my division was poor. Micro managing and unfair. There was little room for advancement and if you were lucky enough to then the compensation was barely anything.

Senior Desktop Support Technician (Former Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 7, 2017
City and County of Denver is a great place to work. In the IT field training dollars are available yearly. A typical day as an IT Desktop person is resolving a multitude of issues ranging from failed hard drives to installing new/current applications, printer issues and imaging desktop computers, laptops and tablets. The workplace culture is friendly and you are in direct contact with the customer. A team environment is a plus.
The hardest part about the job can be the workload. The most enjoyable part is the customer satisfaction and the feeling of accomplishment.
Pros
