What is the company culture like at City of High Point? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Suggestions for improvement

  • There is a certain level of control and managers trying to make power grabs, that do not create a hospitable work environment.

What I like about the company

The people here are lovely. Some are very hardworking and are willing to help others in any way they can. They help me to enjoy my job and keep me satisfied to stay.

What I dislike about the company

As with many government facilities there is waste here, in employee potential and pay. And due to the previous leadership roles, there are managers in place that aren't managers - so working without guidance or leadership can be necessary - a self starter.

What I like about the company

Everyone welcomed me on board from day one and I've never had an issue management didn't take time to resolve.

There are a hand full of people who seem to get away with poor quality work and never have any consequences. They are few though.

  • Better health insurance. Just because someone is in a leadership position doesn’t mean they’re good leaders

What I like about the company

Decent benefits. 6 month maternity leave option (without pay).

What I dislike about the company

Lack of addressing issues with management personnel. Good old boys club. No acknowledging problems. Insurance could be way better.
