- City of Fall River13.Feb 2019
Due to being a municipal employee, many aspects of my work were politicized every few years, and certain elected officials used resignation and appointment powers in a way that encouraged competition and cliques over cooperation.
Suggestions for improvement
- More protections for employees to prevent our positions and salaries from being used as a bargaining chip or political slogan.
What I like about the company
As a public-facing employee, I was in the position not only of serving my community, but seeing the effects of different policies and being able to help those in need navigate what could be complex regulations.
What I dislike about the company
While I personally wasn't an appointed employee, certain superiors were, and as appointed municipal employees, they were sometimes chosen for their ties to a particular individual, or came with baggage that hindered or influenced their ability to lead my department. As elected officials have the power of organizing much of city government, anyone who didn't play politics sort of flew under the radar.
