    Great benefits, but debt load and imminent wave of retirements will continue to limit long-term growth

    I have been working at Port of Oakland full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Motivated and (generally) friendly coworkers, great benefits and good public sector salaries. Current executive team has a positive outlook and is poised to be able to capitalize on opportunities.

    Cons

    Lots of internal turmoil over the last few years, and current economic outlook is limited due to enormous debt burden from previous projects. Generally more business-like as compared to some government agencies, but still an independent department of the City of Oakland.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Still seems to be a major disconnect between the outlook and perspective (challenges and opportunities) as seen by senior team and those on the rank and file level.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
