Company Culture

A long time ago the department had people who cared. This is no longer the case.

Support from management

The management is bad. They are self serving, demanding, lack compassion and generally have no idea of what they are doing.

Internal Communication

Communication does not exist. Everyone works in their own bubble and no one talks amongst each section and barely in their own sections.

Gender Equality

If you are one of the favoured people, you can do no wrong. If you are anyone else, you can do no right.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It is every employee for themself.

Career Development

Good luck getting a promotion or training outside what management decides. Unless, you are one of the chosen. The only career path is to leave.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is decent, benefits need some help.

Work-Life Balance

While management comes in late,takes two hour lunches and leaves early, everyone else is expected to drop life for what they deem as important.

Job Security

There is no stability with this place. When one director leaves, run for cover when the new one comes in.

Challenging Work

The work itself is not incredibly challenging, working through the policies and politics is.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The City needs to clean house and drop the management, restructure the department, remove the endless stream of contractors and hire capable long term employees.

What I like about the company

There was a time that there was a direction, good management and a friendly environment.

What I dislike about the company

There is no communication, bad management, no direction, no vision and no light at the end of the tunnel.
