Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to suggest onsite daycare facility for City of Durham. I think it would attract more talented people to include parents returning to work after arrival of a new baby. It would be a great incentive to keep employees in their positions long ter

What I like about the company

All the people I worked with shared a team effort and seemed to collaborate and communicate respectfully. Other employees in other departments were helpful, friendly, and showed enjoyment in their workplace environment.

What I dislike about the company

I think my onboarding could have been smoother if it was condensed into a shorter time frame. My supervisor was unable to give me all the necessary training upfront so I had to learn a bit on my own and then wait for further details or assistance.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve some of the other benefits (not insurance) to make them more applicable to everyone.

What I like about the company

The benefits are very good, the managers are well trained.

What I dislike about the company

They forget that people have to travel to the job, and often make it difficult to come in during inclement weather. They also don't provide enough in tuition reimbursement.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Continue to be progressive in work life balance and promoting wellness of employees.

What I like about the company

I was able to work in a position that allowed me to help select firms that designed many of the buildings and facilities that have changed the perception of our city. I was able to help small businesses and especially minority and woman owned businesses participate in city contracting.

What I dislike about the company

There needs to be more opportunities for employees to move up in the company.
