This is a great entity to work for. Only con is that there is little room for upward growth because people tend to stay in their roles for a long time
Cons
Little room for advancement

Residential/Commercial construction inspection. Understaffed, tons of inspections those with seniority are given at least half the inspections. The new person is giving a ton of inspections and asked to not get overtime. A lot of challenging personalities. Never told good job only told what you did wrong. The chief inspector is great, but he is overworked.
Pros
Work/ life balance
Cons
Insurance is horrible. Pay is better than most cities but there is a reason why. Micromanaged

Fun place to work in. The departments in Public Works are relatively small so you get to know everyone very fast. Work culture is sometimes independent with a little bit of team effort.

A typical day at work is pretty relaxed and not so stress full. If we get into work a bit early e are allowed to get into the water and go off the diving board.

I liked working there then the manager was trying to micromanage me. Also, my hours were cut back. I was basically wasting time coming for the morning shft.

kennel manager is unprofessional, rude, doesn't care about staff or animals. just a paycheck for her. she plays favoritism, so if you arent on her good side, you do not get days off as asked for, nor promoted. she promoted someone who got there after current part time employees, which was unfair to the ones who put the time in. you get blamed for things others do ( or don't do) she talks down on employees in front of others, is constantly talking about other employees behind their backs, and bullies employees as well as allowing it from other staff.
Pros
get to try and save animals
Cons
everything else!

Worked in two different departments within the city, parks and rec and handitran. Both jobs were 100% secure but both lacked in pay. You did have decent benefits, and flexible hours, but the pay was always on the low side.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Pay scale

Working for a City crew just means that you get to help take care of the city you live in. Making the city a better place and helping with the upkeep of everything going on.

I have been with they City for a total of 6 years. Being a City employee you do received great benefits and dependent upon your position, your pay is usually decent. I have received three promotions during my tenure with the City and have advanced quickly. The main and major issue I have is with the horrible supervisor I have. This person is has been verbally abusive, non-supportive, lack of care in work relationship, and a poor leader. This is the main reason I am considering another position or career change. This person has made my work environment and day to day an extremely unwelcoming place to be. I would work anywhere else in the City, but no longer will I work in the Golf Division for the City.

Very Tense Workplace, The culture does not allow for advancement. Questionable business practices. If you can make it work its a sweet gig but it is unsustainable.

Diversified work

Poor raises and benefits
