Current changes have affected morale and quality of work. Pay scale and performance review is all the same. Whether you perform or not. Its only for paperwork purposes.
It's a job.
Upper management does not represent their workers.
Good worker gets alone with co workers.make sure job assignment are done in timely fashion.takes pride I work and does a good job for the Citizens of Dallas
Weekend holidays time with family
You are tasked to do so much work, and to be paid so little. It really sucked the life out of you. Coworkers were nice, but most were either so snobby because they had a masters degree and the other half had no idea what was going on.
Interactions with all types of people.
Working in all departments for little pay that supports no one.
Management is completely lousy, no real support and much favoritism. Some employee's come to work under the influence of drugs and management says nothing about it even though they know because some of them do the same thing.
Benefits, good place to retire
No true support or encouragement. Favoritism and they hold you back from advancement

There is a huge waste in Time, money and resources going on constantly. If you have any ideas to help make work more efficient and profitable it falls on deaf ears.Everybody is comfortable and doesn't want to do anything positive to change day to day operations for the better.
The good is that i have been therefor a long time and i get a bonus in December. The bad is they don't pay you for what you are worth
They need to start promoting start promoting within the department. They need to allow us to cross train in other departments. We need to start back giving us cost of living raises. Everything in this world has gone up but our pay. Now we are not even getting a raise for 2 years. That mean I have to work an additional 4 years before I am able to retire. That is The good is that i have been therefor a long time and i get a bonus in December. The bad is they don't pay you for what you are worth. They don't promote within. They will pay someone on the outside more than a person that has been there 20 years. .
Enjoyed working there but had health issues and unfortunately had to leave the position. Now that I'm better wish I could go back. They were fair, diverse and honest with all the employees. I enjoyed everything about working there. It was busy most days, which I enjoyed because I prefer to stay busy over being stagnant and not having something to do.

Typical municipality civil service work. City job=city wages...Time spent here is only a good resume builder. No room for advancement under your own merit. Must be someone's favorite or hope your next in line for advancement if someone dies or retire.
No room for advancement
These people are progressive liberal tyrants. If you ate not far left, they will run you off. Dumb as rocks too. I lasted 4 months. Jumped ship and landed a job that pays twice ss much in private world. Great place to put your head down, collect a check, and search for a real job.
Lazy bosses equal lazy work
This job help me by being the confident and communicate with people and attending meetings and talking about some idea for the kids . Working at this job gave me a lot opportunities to Have different skills
worked at a library good workplace great staff but your experience will highly depend on who your manager is. Luckily I had a great manager that cared about the people under them so it worked out well. Pension system is wack and sick/vacation time is a-ok
Chill workplace, free food occassionally
Can be monotonous
They will hire anybody with A 6th grade education that has A relative on City Council, once they get in they promote them to senior manager and the rest is history. Besides the taxpayers input. Then the people that hired on with experience and good work history gets laughed at. What A wonderful job. Loved getting spit in the face for 4 years.
managers act like children that missed the ice cream truck
