    I worked at City of Henderson, Neveda full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most of the people that work at the City of Henderson are first class. There are innovative programs the City seeks to implement that are exciting and diverse.

    Cons

    Nepotism, lack of communication, lack of consistency in following policies. Recognition of employee sacrifices during economic downturn has not been recognized in the new administration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the culture and ease of communication within the City. Honor the people that follow the implemented rules and policies. Provide programs for employee appreciation and encourage supervisors to use them. Hold supervisors accountable to their job duties, and provide leadership training for supervisors.

    I have been working at City of Henderson, Neveda full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, that is about it.

    Cons

    Years ago ambition, work ethic and job knowledge moved you through the organization. Currently the "executive team" recruits individuals and appoints people to positions under the table. A select few are being promoted and given raises while the general story to the workers is that all salaries are frozen. Corruption and cronyism is rampant. View Ralston Reports to see some of the examples of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some integrity, BTW you can't but that. Most employees see through the lies.

    I worked at City of Henderson, Neveda full-time

    Pros

    Excellent salary & benefits and the four day work week is nice. Best local government to work for in the area. Many departments have received awards for achievements.

    Cons

    Poor economy negatively impacting employee morale. Everyone is grateful for job but challenging to constantly do more with less. Like all government agencies in these times, no clear sign of when things will improve.
