Suggestions for improvement

  • Mainly ongoing training...ensuring decision makers are invested across the organization.

What I like about the company

Variety of work is challenging at times and can be very rewarding.

What I dislike about the company

Departments are silos...they make decisions and changes for their areas without fully considering the affects on other areas. They also lack ongoing training on key topics.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think the training program needs to be more organized. Not everyone is made to do the work that we do, and it's frustrating to have them trying to force people through training that can not handle the work.

What I like about the company

Although we work long hours and the job is very stressful, our higher ups always try to make us feel valued. Several times a year, they give away prize and/or supply food for each shift.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes I wish they would ask our opinion on things before making policy changes that affect everyone.

  • I would add additional sick days.

What I like about the company

We have good insurance and for city government the pay is pretty good. Management is generally supportive and encourages education and growth.

What I dislike about the company

I am not pleased with only having five sick days. We had multiple employees sick with influenza who came to work still contagious because of this.
