Suggestions for improvement

  • Instead of implementing insensitive for those that fall short of the city’s goals, whether health and fitness, performance, image, etc, implement incentives for those that already meet those standards. Those that fall short, will likely work more diligently to meeting the goals. Far to often I see insentive programs target at “below satisfactory” employees. Many times those programs are merely participatory insentives, but no real gain for success. This in turn leaves out those at, or above, satisfactory. Reward those that are “towing the line” so to speak, not the ones acting as anchors. However, I still believe in programs and avenues to provide needed assistance for those that want to participate and succeed.

What I like about the company

I am provided with adequate equipment to perform my job. I am provided with adequate training, both internally and externally. There is plenty of opportunity for advancement.

What I dislike about the company

At times there is a lack of oversight, mostly attributed to poor prioritizing, and taking on too many projects. The City has, at times, tried to accomplish too much without the adequate workforce in place to carry out and maintain the benefits and improvements, l to the public, associated with their vision(s).
