Very different from the private sector
Human Resources Representative, Sr (Former Employee) –  City HallSeptember 11, 2018
There were too many alliances and clicks at the city which caused morale to be very low. Friends were hiring friends that were not qualified for the positions they were placed in and given very high salaries. Hard working employees with tenure and institutional knowledge of the organization were looked over for advances and increases.

good luck, youre going to need it
Assistant Solicitor (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 5, 2018
Yes, the entire place from top to bottom is corrupt. The cast changes but its the same show. You will be worked to death if you're good at your job so make sure you do the least amount possible. Everyone is related to everyone else so you have to watch what you say. Everyone is a backstabber ready to lash out.

Executive Level (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 4, 2018
A great place to work-if there is any place that you could go to learn many facets of public service the City of Atlanta is the place. Again, I am not sure how or why this is valid.

Great Opportunity for Person Relocating to Atlanta and Looking for a Job in Corrections or Law Enforcement
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA 30308August 24, 2018
City of Atlanta Correctional Department is a great opportunity to begin a career in corrections or law enforcement. The staff and officers are amazing to work around and provide a lot of insight to new hire personnel. The benefits package is awesome and the pension plan is a great tool to assist with for retirement. However, the opportunity for promotion and pay increases were limited due to budget cuts and the opportunity for tuition reimbursement was taken away. Yet, if you are a person trying to begin your career in corrections / law enforcement or a person just relocating from another state and looking for a job, this could be an ideal job to begin your career.
Pros
Benefits/Pension Plan, Staff and Officers
Cons
No Tuition Reimbursement, No Pay Increases, Limited Promotions

Safety Manager, Department of City Planning (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 14, 2018
If there was more upward mobility and raises that would help make it a better place to work. Job security is certainly a bonus and benefits are competitive.

The REAL Airport Operations
Airport Operations Representative II (Former Employee) –  LandsideJuly 24, 2018
Know what you're walking into folks. This division within the City of Atlanta will be a wake up call in your aviation career. The job itself is easy and can sometimes be fun, but the Managers are cut throat and can care less about you. If you think anyone of them will have your back, you will regret it. Even the HR Managers downtown are aware of this bias department and they choose not to act. Once you are inside the Operations department you will soon realize why the turnover is so high. Just a word of advice, if you get the position stay to yourself at all times, enjoy the job itself, learn all that you can and get out of that department fast!
Pros
Pension, 401k
Cons
Management, Salary
