I worked at City of Boise

Pros

Good benefits and laudable effort to include employees in decisions about compensation. Some departments are just better to work for than others.

Cons

Poor supervision / evaluations; low wages; disjointed direction from the top; little emphasis beyond lip service to provide consistency throughout the organization; budget approach is in a constant state of change, which makes it difficult to provide ongoing support for some programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Way too many irons in the fire. Decide what's important and focus on those things. Need to get expert help at standardizing business practices.

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

    Pros

    Health benefits, wellness program, and PERSI system are outstanding; Mayor has clear and exciting vision; most members of the Executive Management Team are absolutely amazing.

    Cons

    Supervisors struggle to catch the vision and pass that energy to employees; supervisor training is also slow to develop, so they're not giving employees the best coaching and performance advice. Most employees don't feel there are advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on leadership development and supervisor training!
