Bland, Boring and Old fashioned
Financial Analyst II (Former Employee) – Alexandria – March 29, 2015
I was at the City for 4 years and couldn't get out of there sooner. Very little chance for upward mobility, departments were required to be EXTREMELY CHEAP in terms of training, travel, development, etc.
Little to no flexibility with regard to work hours or Telework. Dull work environment and although the people were nice, most were typical, boring steady Eddy types with no personality and attitudes of "1 more day until Friday."
Salaries at the City tended to be about 10% less than its jurisdictional counterparts.
Management is usually fair about stuff, which is about the only positive I can think of.
Horrible place to work and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
