    I have been working at City of Carlsbad part-time

    Pros

    We work in a team environment and most of the employees and supervisors are great to work with. The public attitude has improved towards public employees in the last couple years as the tea party looses their influence. The job is flexible and I am able to make my own decisions about how to perform my job duties. I have freedom from being micro-managed and feel that most of the bosses trust our judgment to do what needs to be done.

    Cons

    This is an affluent city and the cost of living is high here. In the last 6 years we have received only one cost of living adjustment which amounted to 25 cents per hour. We do not get any other type of pay increases, yet the minimum wage in the state increased by $1 per hour on July 1. So, we are falling behind. This city should be embarrassed by the way they look after their employees. Most of us are hourly employees who do not receive any benefits. On top of this, new employees do not receive social security credit for working here because of a loophole that the city found to get around paying social security taxes for hourly employees. Note: These are employees who do not have a pension or any type of benefits not even sick leave, holiday, or vacation pay. I would not recommend this job to anyone who is not independently wealthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to save money at the expense of your employees. Stop hiring managers who come in and cut back and outsource jobs in order to justify their own high pay. Instead take care of your employees. Workers who feel appreciated will work harder and care more about their job. Public service will improve. You will never be a world class city if you do not take care of your employees. They are the backbone of your city.
    Note: The mayor is no longer Bud Lewis. Those were the good old days when employees counted.
