Tasks are very redundant, dealing with disgruntled people every day in most positions, job security is good due to Union, benefits are awesome including paid sick days and paid vacation days, the City is supporting of those with children in terms of work/life balance however upper management often treats you different if you're younger and don't have children. Management is not good; due to the Union system/internal hiring a LOT of those in management positions are grandfathered in and don't actually posses leadership skills or appropriate training for a management position. You must look and act the part otherwise management will hassle you to "act appropriately" meaning they want you to be a robot like everyone else that works for the City. This place kills your joy but it's great for your financial security/future.

Friendly place to work! Everybody is super welcoming and encouraging. The job is super easy as well, it allows you the freedom to grow yourself but when you do need help it's always available.
