- City of Oxnard01.Dec 2017
It was a culture of hard work but yet we managed to have some light hearted fun.
Support from management
I believe the intentions were there for some management..again, restructure.
Again, at time of restructure this had not been addressed yet.
Freedom to work independently
I knew my responsibilities , expectations, and requirements . I appreciated the trust that was given to work without direct supervision.
This was something that I believed could use improvement. That also could have been information did not trickle down which was strictly supervisor relatef.
I was one of only two females of a department of 30. I don't feel i was always respected individually by management and the men were often revered as stars of the department. Again this is department related.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I never saw someone disrespected by their age. In fact, the knowledge was very much appreciated.
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits were great...compensation, personally I needed to be aggressive in my pursuit of just compensation. Department management had it's agenda therefore I was forced to go to my union .
Office / Work Environment
Although it had it's challenges, it was a pleasant environment to work in. I can say I enjoyed going to work every day.
Never was I expected to work overtime...the city offered many programs to help employees cope with this. They also provided services for other types of personal needs.
I felt secure through the restructure even if that meant moving to another area of the city.
Never noticed any accommodations for handicapped.
For the most part, the department was very safety conscience. There were delays in addressing much larger safety issues due to cost.
Suggestions for improvement
- Better communication. Improve Human Resources accessibility
What I like about the company
I enjoyed my job very much. Most everyone was extremely helpful and pleasant to work with.
What I dislike about the company
