I have been working at City of Odessa
Pros – Pension, good benefits, including a health clinic and employee and fitness center. Good mid-level managers. Employees tend to be supportive of each other, help each other out.
Cons – Poor communication from the top, lack of modern technology applications. Management tends to ignore problems or play them down rather than addressing them in order to avoide bad publicity. Unequal administration of discipline.
Advice to Senior Management – More investment in personnel development, improved use of and training for technology would improve working conditions and attitudes.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at City of Odessa
Pros – They got 2-1 retirement. Layed back most part friendly. Great benifits free clinic and gym. You can build your time off. Lots of holidays. Supervisors tend to work with you. You feel good when you help the city not run out of water.
Cons – Very low pay. 12-18hr in the low end jobs such as I&E tech or maintiance or plant operator.. Management has tends to support themselfs. Passed up twice for supervisor. Been there 5 yr. My new supervisors got fired for not knowing job. But if you get in good with the supervisors they will promote you. They recently didnt promote a 25 yr employee and chose to hire a employee that only been there 6 months. He later left 2 yr later. Most all the Veterns were basically force to retired due to no promotion. Management doesnt acknowledge your work. Promised training when started never sent or given any training. Some jobs perform are very dangerous. Lack of ppe.
Advice to Senior Management – Invest in the people that been there longer. Provide better training. Reduce micromanagment. Listen to your employees. Reduce hostile work enviroment. Better pay. Hire more people . Treat employees like there human.
