      People are great; bureaucracy is bad

      Pros

      About half the people working at DCP are among the brightest you'll ever meet. They're passionate about their city and about their jobs. A friendly and supportive environment.

      Cons

      Due to it being a government department, many staff have outstayed their welcome; their old, do little, but won't get off the payroll. This contributes to an overall sense of stagnation. Also, bureaucracy makes things more inefficient than the opposite sometimes.
