Company Culture

During my time here, I was never commended by a supervisor. However, I received multiple commendations from coworkers and other city employees.

Support from management

In the 8 months that I was an intern with this company, department leadership changed three times. At no point was there ever a clear leader nor did anyone in the leadership role provide support for the interns.

Teamwork

Teamwork is frowned upon. This is very much an "everyone man for yourself" environment.

Freedom to work independently

Of the 7 employees that resigned during my short time here, 3 resigned due to overwhelming workloads.

Internal Communication

All upper decisions / information are kept from standard employees. A majority of the time, you aren't aware of any changes being made until the day you arrive at your desk.

Gender Equality

I don't feel that equality is an issue.

Attitude towards older colleagues

During the last few weeks I was there, multiple people were interviewing for desktop support positions. I am aware of 3 candidates that were turned down partly due to their age.

Career Development

This was the biggest issue for me, by far. As an intern, I was told I would have the opportunity to work with team members and expand my knowledge / skill set. This was never the case. From day one, I was placed on the help desk and refused opportunities to work with others. The CITO herself said in a meeting, "We are doing our interns a disservice", yet never did anything about it.

Overall compensation for your work

Interns receive no benefits. Also, the amount of work expected of an intern does not meet with acceptable compensation.

Office / Work Environment

Working conditions are fair. However, the desktop support team was moved into an office that was converted from an old storage closet, which is why I gave 4 stars.

Environmental Friendliness

Safety was never a concern. You are protected from environmental and climate conditions.

Work-Life Balance

Almost all employees are salary, meaning you rarely work a 40 hour week. In most cases, you will be expected to work upwards of 60 hours as well as be on the "on-call" rotation.

Company Image

I will simply state that in the 8 months I was an intern here, 9 members of my department resigned, none of which were for retirement.

Job Security

There is not job security here. Tenure means nothing. At any time, you can be fired for any reason. All it takes is for you to rub someone of power the wrong way, sadly.

Handicapped Accessibility

There is sufficient access for disabled employees / customers.

Workplace Safety

Safety was never an issue.

Challenging Work

I rate this 1 star because my duties were limited to workstation setup and basic hardware troubleshooting, both of which were not remotely challenging.

What I like about the company

The only positive thing I have to say from my experience with the City is that I was able to make my own schedule as an intern, given that I was still taking classes.

What I dislike about the company

There are multiple issues with the city, most of which I addressed in my ratings. The biggest issue I had was empty promises of opportunities to expend and grow.
