Management turnover has greatly improved environment

Actually pushing employees to be mroe team oriented now

40 hour week for the most part

Since this is government the red tape really slows getting thing accomplished. This also means there is less flexibility in accomplishing ask.

The following perks were offered to me

Health and wellness programs is offered

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop hiring expensive firms to mess up the job analysis and screw an entire segment of workers out of a raise, simply because the company hired doesn't understand the concept of a senior operator versus an operator. Save the money for better raises next time and do the study yourself.

What I like about the company

The City has tried it's best to find ways to compensate the workers for their contributions.

What I dislike about the company

The City does not listen to the workers when it comes to decisions that have a direct impact on the workers.

Company Culture

There is too much backstabbing and attempts to undermine other employees.

Teamwork

They breed the backstabbing culture

Freedom to work independently

They do in the sense that they let us work alone, but they always second guess every decision

Internal Communication

We are more than halfway through the fiscal year and I have yet to receive any input on my performance

Gender Equality

I firmly believe that I did not get a promotion because I am a woman

Career Development

They have very few advancement opportunities ince you hit a certain level

Overall compensation for your work

Nope. They screwed up a study on pay and now people under me make about what I make.

Office / Work Environment

They will not even allow a drink on the desk in the control room. It took an ADA request to get that.

Work-Life Balance

They don't care about holidays

Workplace Safety

We have safety classes, but some of the things they have us do are unsafe

Challenging Work

Water treatment is no joke

Inclusive / Diverse

They never want to hear our ideas

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fair pay for the work that we do.

What I like about the company

They rallied around me when I was first diagnosed with cancer.

What I dislike about the company

The upper echelon. They forget what it is like to be in the trenches, or were never even here.
