Moccasin Location
Senior Administrative/Accounting Analyst (Former Employee) –  Moccasin, Ca.October 17, 2017
Do to the isolated location, there are few area's where you can move up. Most employees stay in their job for many years, which is a good thing, if that is what you want to do.

OK, but very disorganized
Senior Purchaser (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 1, 2017
There are a lot of conflicting agendas between departments and between managers withing departments. This causes conflict on many levels for projects that should be easy.

Also, there are many employees that hate their jobs, but stay because the benefits are very good. Creating the stereotypical government employee that doesn't want to be there and doesn't want to help anyone.
Pros
good benefits and pay
Cons
disorganized management in most departments

Field Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco Bay Area, CAAugust 1, 2017
Lots of projects to gain plenty of experience. Work schedule is pretty flexible and work life balance is fair. In my opinion, you can get get stuck in one position too long if you are not willing to move around which is the same for most government positions.

PMO Consultant (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 21, 2015
The City of San Francisco has given me carte blanche to use my creativity to improve the way city employees collaborate, streamline processes, improve skills, and elevate tools. There is nothing better than going to work in the morning knowing that you are empowered to make decisions, you're trusted to do the right thing, and the changes you bring will help the City of San Francisco local government become more efficient.
