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

    Pros

    I moved on to another more rewarding job.

    Nothing happens fast. Always told no money but everyone with the exception of HR gets raises and non-union loses on everything.

    I have been working at City of Louisville (Kentucky) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    8-5, Holidays off, No weekends, Dr. Nesbitt, Salaries are Public information

    Cons

    Salary- you almost qualify for SNAP and WIC due to poor salaries if you are a new employee. Long term staff make high salaries and brag and bully new staff. Terrible fiilthy conditions, carpet smells, Jobs continued to be threated due to previous administration handling of salaries . Impossible to fire an incompetent staff member due to union. Union always wins. Supervisors are expected to take on more work while deputy directors cut staff.The only intrest for leadership is data collection and Healthy 2020.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the building,replace the stained fiflthy, moldy carpet. Support supervisors, listen to their suggestions. Have a collaberative menagement team not a dictator leadership who does not understand the processes at the clinics. Close programs that you have no intention on keeping long term such as WIC, immunizations, Family Planning, STD.

    I worked at City of Louisville (Kentucky)

    Pros

    It looks good as a filler on your resume, decent pay scales, great health benefits, great environment to be in when dealing with coworkers,

    Cons

    Too much politics, the exact epitome of extreme nepotism, its not about your skills, education, or work ethic. It is more about who's butt will you kiss to keep your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your job, take a class or two on management 101 and employee relations. Stop placing friends, family members, associates and unqualified individuals in positions just because you are in a position to do so.
