I have been working at City of Alexandria Virginia full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good health benefits, competitive salaries, opportunities for growth. New City Manger encourages innovation, team work and values all employees.

Cons

Some directors have been in positions too long and are operating in archaic thought processes that only make sense to them and no one else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide quality leadership training to all management. Make it mandatory for middle managers and department heads to attend leadership and management training together to foster better work relationships and mutual respect.
