Pros: Shift Schedule, Technology, Paperless systems
Cons: Management can be intimidating, Turn over rate is higher than other reputable city's of the same class/size.
Durham is a good place to get your "foot in the door" in the public sector field. There are a substantial amount of managers and not enough laborers/technicians to balance out, but if you can configure yourself around that challenge, you can be fine to work here. My opinion is I am sound but don't consider myself wanting to retire from The City of Durham.
