Typical Government Job
Program Coordinator (Current Employee), West Palm BeachAugust 14, 2014
Negative Attitudes. Declining compensation and benefit package (no raises in 6+ years). Great for entry into the job market and gaining experience. Hard-working, ambitious individuals will most certainly leave after 2 years.

Exciting and culture challenge
Safety Officer (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FLApril 10, 2014
Pros: something new every day
Cons: it's been this way for a long time.
I don't think any day in Safety is typical. Joining the City is a challenge, I am starting the safety program from group zero, as the safety position was empty for five years. I review incident reports and help to map out Root Causes for each incident and report findings to Department Directors.

Plant Water Operator (Former Employee), West Palm Beach, FLFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: government job, great sick leave and vacation days.
Cons: management higher echelon
The City of West Palm Beach was an overall good place to work. The only thing that was bad was the fighting and double crossing between management as well as no raises in 5 years.

Multi-tasking office
Police Records Specialist, Court Liaison (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FLNovember 13, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: no opportunities / no raises
Processing public records request on a regular basis, background investigations, lacks management, not so punctual coworkers. The hardest part of this job is the multi-tasking to make up the short comings of the overall low staffing.

Government Job, All stereotypes apply
Coo (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FLMay 21, 2013
Pros: so easy... even a cave man can do it.
Cons: gossiping, negative, employees, top heavy
You will be with people who will not want to do better then status quo. If you do go above and beyond management will think you are trying to take their job and you will be penalized. Much red tape for no reason. If you want to do the bare minimum and don't mind being stagnant for long periods of time. this is the job for you. The system does not change – more... much even if ineffective. – less

Productive work days running organized programs and games with at risk youths.
Recreation Specialist/Case Manager (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FLApril 11, 2013
Being a Recreation Specialist allowed me to learn how to have a better understanding and respect for troubled youths and the environment they reside in. Hardest part of the job is leaving there on time because the setting is so comfortable you lose track of time. The most enjoyable time is just being there with the children of the program interacting – more... playing or current event discussing. – less
