Great Team Culture but Short Staffed
Senior Architect (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – February 20, 2016
Good benefits, including salary, health care and retirement. City staff is comprised of many good and talented people for the most part. However, advancement is slow. Not much turn-over. Like many local municipalities, there are few architect positions relative to the number of engineering positions. The work of engineers seem to be valued more than that of architects. That being said there are opportunities for charismatic and confident individuals to have a hand in guiding the direction of the City and truly affect change in the culture.
Great autonomy; Professional development. licensing and professional organizations paid for
City bureaucracy, Low-bid requirements for public projects, exceptional projects few and far between
