    Former Employee - City Bus Driver in Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at City of Albuquerque full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable pay and benefits. City policies toward workers are fair, such as safety, and work environment accommodations.

    Cons

    Lateral mobility inter-departmentally is stifled somewhat. Rehires at the same department are rare, even if leaving amicably. For some reason there is a vindictive attitude toward those who leave the department. Upward mobility is political. It's not what you know, but who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people have worked here a long time and want to move up. moving up somebody unqualified or fresh out of highschool with no work experience isn't wise.

    I worked at City of Albuquerque full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You meet some very dedicated people

    Cons

    Most of the assignments are politically engineered. About 80% of the staff works and the top 20% are there because of political relationships and payback. Most of the technology management spend their days smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee and are absolutely the most terrible people in the world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house

    Former Employee - Former Vet Tech in Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at City of Albuquerque full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A great place to start as a student hands on, good place for experience in the field as it's a high-volume spay and neuter shelter environment.

    Cons

    Understaffed and completely out of control. Substandard facilities. Corrupt in a lot of aspects. A few of the techs are very two-faced and will undermine you about your skills when they should worry about their own job. Management was horrible, the clinic manager there at the time was an absolute, unstable nut case who couldn't handle working with people directly. Was given tasks that didn't fully utilize my education and even felt more like a slave at times then an actual tech. There are "too many cooks in the kitchen" and you don't even know who's a supervisor and who isn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't treat the animals like they are only work. Hire a clinic manager who can handle the stress of a shelter environment. Also, keep tabs on employees who constantly gossip and undermine those who actually want to work.

    Pros

    Good People
    Good Deadlines

    IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK WITH GREAT UPPER MANAGEMENT, YOU JUST HAVE TO WORK HARD.

    Cons

    I HAVE BEEN HERE FOR 3 YEARS PART TIME BECAUSE OF SCHOOL AND BUT I DONT BELIEVE THEY WANT TO GIVE ME A FULL TIME JOB.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to have a little more advancement for younger worker. Give full time jobs to people that deserve it not people that have been there for years.
