Suggestions for improvement

  • Nothing really in particular, except that in our particular department, the division between attorneys and office staff is way too stark.

What I like about the company

I enjoy working for the City of Milwaukee, overall, though the benefits are often the best part. If my co-workers are decent at the time, that helps also.

What I dislike about the company

Because it's working for a municipality, everything is controlled by statutes and ordinances, which gets annoying and prevents some of the benefits of other employment (like raises, bonuses, etc.)

Suggestions for improvement

  • The building I work in is infested with cockroaches and there could be more effort to eradicate that problem.

What I like about the company

The benefits are great. I went to school for a master’s degree and received tuition reimbursement, there is a very good health and dental plan with relatively low deductibles, paid time off, flexible spending plans, wellness program with the potential to earn up to $700 FSA annually. Coworkers are friendly, supportive and helpful. Flexibility to take time off.

What I dislike about the company

The pay could be better and there are no increases. Employees have to pay for parking.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to listen to employee feedback about management and they need to stop playing favorites with certain employees. Treat everyone the same!

What I like about the company

I work with some nice people and learn a lot about Milwaukee

What I dislike about the company

They have a lot of policies about things like discrimination and harassment but no consequences for anyone who violates the policies.
