    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chandler, AZ

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

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, city is well-managed, most employees are very friendly and eager to help.

    Cons

    Poorly run individual departments, very top-heavy with high, mid and low-level managers, no work-life balance, benefits extremely expensive with each passing year, no regard for employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry more about employee morale so that, at the very least, your overall work product will improve. Offer better training opportunities. Treat employees with respect and communicate better - not everything has to be a huge secret. Promote creativity and offer more employee support.

    Pros

    Good people to work with
    The job was not very stressful

    Cons

    This is a bit of upward mobility but not much. I suppose it depends what you do at for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They gave great advice and they really wanted to help their employees succeed. I am happy with the management and how they handled things.

    I have been working at City of Chandler

    Pros

    Decent pay compared to other city jobs. Have met some great overall people

    Cons

    Superintendent treats everyone like dogs. Always down talking the employees. We dont get raises/get our hours cut when the superintendent makes over 100K.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find someone who actually likes their job. There doesnt seem to be any happiness or enthusiasm from upper level management. There is no positive feedback regarding a good performance and yet there seems to be a surplus of negative feedback.
