Job security is the biggest part of working for the city
Accountant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 14, 2018
If you want long term career, this is the place to be. However, if you want the ability to more upward through promotions, you will be very disappointed. And there is the compensation package which isn't very rewarding. In most cases, you will get a yearly 2% raise across the board, but that's it. The medical, dental, and sick and vacation time is a little better than what might be offered by some companies. But, you could come in thinking and hoping to make an impact and find yourself with management that will dash every ambition and dream.
The retirement package
It's too political. with no rewards. Run!
