    Pros

    Good job if you are a student looking to make some light money in the meantime.

    Cons

    Extreme weather (too hot, rainy, etc.), constantly dealing with rude people and occasional residential dangers. This is after all an outdoor job in San Bernardino.

    Advice to Management

    N/A


  3. The City of San Bernardino is in bankruptcy for a reason.

    Pros

    Employer willing to offer better than market rate for the right employees.

    Cons

    Very strict work schedule. Heavy workload and no leniency. The City has a backlog of about 6 months on everything. Management provides no assistance and is usually absent.

    Advice to Management

    Don't offer high starting salaries, if you really can't afford it. This city needs to know its place. City is decrepit like its policies. Mayor and City Council want this City to be like South Orange County. Not Happening. Upper management is constantly arguing with each other. My advice: Fire all the managers and let the County take over.

  5. The people I worked with were great; the politicians (appointed and elected officials) are ruining the city!

    Pros

    Good benefits, before they went bankrupt! The majority of city employees were friendly and did an excellent job.

    Cons

    The appointed and elected officials of the city are the ones who caused the bankruptcy by their actions toward one another. No business person wants to bring a new business into a city with so many restrictions and such a volatile city council!

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees and listen to them. They are the ones who know what is going on in their department and with staff.


  6. Climate of fear at the top. Cronyism.

    Poor financial management. Squabbling Council.
