    I worked at City of Anaheim California full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers; good company culture of respect and diversity; hard working and competent bosses

    Cons

    Council politics are a bit extreme in the past years to the point of being disruptive to department plans, but most lower level employees will not be affected by it

    I worked at City of Anaheim California as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great sense of community amongst ALL employees from all departments. true commitment to serving the public that shows through collaboration of various departments

    Cons

    Very very structured (as it is expected of a government agency) a set of rules have to be followed in most processes so this slows down work a little bit if you like fast paced environments it might be a little hard not to get impatient at times

    I worked at City of Anaheim California part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers in a pleasant environment. Possible to become a union member, but if not, you still have "representation" on your side. I was part-time and received a notice that I was represented and rallied for regarding raises.

    Cons

    I did not have a training manual, so it made learning the job much harder than needed. The position involved "codes" and to not have a key available let alone a literal manual is a huge short coming for a local publicly owned government operation.

    Also, as mentioned above, it is a mixed-environment with union and non-union employees. Threats that a "grievance" towards a non-union employee is present. Take care in what you *do* to avoid this mis-used "behavior" by some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have Training Manual's ready for new hires. Especially when you suddenly create a new position due to work overload.
