(For non-union employees) There are multiple health plans, and you can actually sign up for a plan where you do not pay any monthly premiums and it's pretty cheap. There is a clinic with doctor downtown or in Florence that you can use for free for standard healthcare that is extremely convenient. Dental and vision are ok but not amazing. Pension plan is pretty good, but takes five years to be vested. 10 holidays a year, 1 sick day per month, and standard vacation time based on length of service but it can be negotiated a bit when hired. No paid maternity leave. Options for additional retirement accounts without a match (pension contribution is high).

Depends on the department you work in. At city hall hours can be somewhat flexible to accommodate family life but still generally an 8-4 schedule. Sometimes you may need to attend evening meetings but usually if you do you can come in late or leave early on another day to offset (even if you are salaried)

I honestly enjoyed my job to some degree, however the work environment was often times like high school. It was like you had to play nice to keep your job or they would find something on you to either write you up or fire you. Very cliquey there, if they liked you, your good however if not watch yourself.
