Company Culture

The City overall is pretty good, the finance department is fantastic. Great people, positive atmosphere.

Teamwork

Our office is good in this, but inter-office things get political and fuss about the budget, etc.

Internal Communication

Daily communication about what the City is up to, etc. Active in media.

Career Development

There are a lot of good jobs, but that dead end and give such specific skills it's hard to move up or go anywhere.

Environmental Friendliness

Government loves their paper. But we are getting better.

Work-Life Balance

Very good, we have a union and they seem to function the way unions were intended (I've been in unions that I did not feel this way about). Hours are good, extra time is compensated.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Find ways to encourage growth.

What I like about the company

Employees are treated well, good benefits.

What I dislike about the company

Parking downtown isn't great.
