    Good at first, until dysfunction was encountered.

    ProsGreat work-life balance, good pension plan, okay benefits (Blue Cross Group Plan). Co-workers are a pleasure to work with.

    ConsLeadership needs to change. The new City Manager has made some major positive changes and has made it mandatory for Management to undergo leadership training however, it is difficult to believe in the sudden attitude shift from dysfunctional to leader and in some cases, employees below Management level are being subject to 'digs' from Management that are unhappy with their recent anonymous Survey Review resulting in a bullying atmosphere, and employees leaving on a regular basis. Some of the middle Management cannot train and explain technical processes because they don't understand the technical concepts and are therefore only capable of operating on a routine basis without knowing or understanding the logic of why, and just replicates how things were done in the past and cannot identify improvements in business processes or find efficiencies, nor are they open to process change. The employee usually ends up bearing the repercussions of a Supervisor without the required knowledge who therefore cannot provide a learning environment or train appropriately. Mixed messages are common too as you will hear one thing then hear another thing a different day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership should be totally replaced in order to refresh the City organisation otherwise, more dedicated, passionate, and hard-working employees will continue to leave as leaders continue to act in a dysfunctional way behind closed doors and transfer their own stress and pressures to employees through a micromanagement or bullying approach. Unless the goal is to refresh the organisation by creating a situation where lower employees end up wanting to leave resulting in new employees who are not familiar with Managements dysfunction for the benefit of Management getting a clean slate, then do nothing, and keep doing what you are doing and employees below any Supervisory level will continue to leave on their own volition.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
