The organization is saturated in corruption, prejudice and bullying. The City claims to encourage whistleblowing but when you do, you become a target of corporate bullying from the top down, character assassination, until they literally work you out the gate. Gangsterism within the City is very real, many thugs in high ranking positions, abusing their office. Those claiming the Cityis a great place to work are either themselves corrupt or turn a blind eye to save face.
Pros
Job security, good income
Cons
Promise of promotion in return for fringe benefits, blackmail, no job security or personal safety if you are a whistleblower

Flexible hours. Relaxed environment to work in, weekends offs were great. Annual bonus. Management was not great, but ok. Not very much of development training provided, no team buildings and departmental end-year functions were dull and boring

It's fine to work for City of Cape Town if permanent because then you have benefits and income security but if you are a contract worker there's very little chance for your contract to be extended or even to become permanent.

Do as your motto " the city works for you" because for me i was even sleeping on site as we would knock off 22:00 having to go to Khayelitsha at that time without transportation to take me home at that time and money i was using on transport was around R2000 on the very same salary i was getting meaning i was working for transport.
