I worked at City of Alexandria Virginia part-time for more than a year

Pros

Lots of opportunities across the department to become involved in. Pretty clear and easy line of communication regarding any possible concerns. Management has changed for the better recently.

Cons

Working for the City of Alexandria can be tough to get your foot in the door as often the majority of hires are actually re hires but they have to go through the "hiring process." Unfortunately you'll never know what is going on until you receive an email months down the road.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be up front about rehires.

    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.
