Suggestions for improvement

  • Have more opportunities for departments to get together.....have more team meetings.

What I like about the company

This company employs a great deal of minorities in entry level positions. It is refreshing to see so many people employed. There is no micro managing (at least not in my department). A person is assigned a job and expected to carry it through.

What I dislike about the company

The persons at the very top are mostly white males.....would like this area diverse.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Term limits on the city council. More internal focus on employees. Also less red tape to fire bad employees.

What I like about the company

Great employees and some great leadership. Have been active at promoting from within and managing up. I was included in a succession training that exposed us to all city departments, taught leadership and set us up with mentors. This led to my promotion as a supervisor.

What I dislike about the company

Politics, financial allocation and planning. Lack of effort on employee retention. Have lowered raises, removed cost of living raises, took away financial incentives and bonuses, and increased benefit costs.
