Company Culture

A core group works while others coast

Support from management

Work to best of your ability but within political boundaries

Teamwork

Operations driven with little to no regard for engineering

Gender Equality

WBE and MBE preferential workplace

Attitude towards older colleagues

Average age seems to be mid 50's

Career Development

Lots of Lunch and Learns so you can waste 2 hours and get a free sandwhich

Overall compensation for your work

Graduates receive half of private sector salary, no 401 & must belong to union

Office / Work Environment

No budget for decent furniture or electronic equipment

Environmental Friendliness

We must be socially aware and politically correct at all times

Work-Life Balance

Survive by putting in 40 hours and forgetting work

Company Image

Always in news and laughed at

Job Security

Keep your head down and make no waves and you will retire from here

Handicapped Accessibility

Only the best for disabilities

Workplace Safety

Excessive safety training programs with many personnel on disability leave

Challenging Work

Challenge is there. No budget to do it, and when there is, someone else gets priority treatment (usually)

Inclusive / Diverse

Painfully diverse and inclusive despite needing to get work done

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start running company like a business and managing the budget like it was your money. Hold people responsible.

What I like about the company

Got a job with little stress, challenges I can avoid, with management too busy being and working with politicians to get work done, and a continuing job until I can retire. No responsibility and 40 hours a week. Get a check with inexpensive health benefits every 2 weeks.

What I dislike about the company

Must work in city, pay for my own transportation, listen to people complain when they are forced to do something, listen to people complain when they have nothing to do, watch outside people getting paid big money to do what could be done by employees for almost nothing. Counting years till I can retire.
