Good
Good place to grow and expand. Good benefits, however, pay is rather low. Your experience would depend on the department you are employed under. Over a decent place to work.

Racially hostile environment
No advancement opportunities. Most stay in the same position until retirement. Low office moral. Desk assignments are blatantly group by race. EEO liaisons are also city employee with long-standing relationships with upper management, which results in further discrimination and retaliation.

I was a temp for 6-7 years. Typical scientist/public health mentality and data heads that look right through you.

I was tolerated as a quirky clerical assistant who functioned as a court jester and allowed a super flexible schedule. The temps in our/all? depts got fired when Diblasio term started.


The Communicable Disease Bureau was an exciting place to work. I'd love to be a fly on the wall now with the Coronovirus blossoming.

Job security
There is a sense of job security here and also a high turnover where employee doesn’t stay more that 3-4 years. The supervisor stay much longer but there is also a lack of advancement

None
Management has deceptive tactics towards its staff. Not receptive to employees needs. Plays favoritism over and only promotes those they like but are less qualified.

Professional Work Space
A great place to work if considering government jobs. The people are all very nice and helpful, always open for questions and feedback, and the environment promotes strong work. Everyone is very professional and works in a timely manner.
Pros
Promotes a good work life balance
Cons
As a government job, do not expect anything like free food.

Excellent teamwork and understanding colleagues. I loved working there.
If I could work there again, I most likely would. I loved the work environment and everyone in there especially my supervisor. I was very happy and content with everything about the job. I miss it terribly.

Perfect if you just want a job and health insurance.
This department offers very little in the way of interest or challenge. You can work your tail off or sleep your days away it wont really matter as no one rewards hard work or reprimands poor work. The only thing that matters in this system is putting in your time.
