    Pros

    Lots of room to move around and/or up, security of unionized strucutre, benefits and compensation are slightly above average for most people (although if you're a high performer it won't compare with private industry)

    Cons

    like most governments environments its a bureaucracy, its easy to lose focus on what you're trying to do with your career, the work can sometimes be mundane if your manager is not on top of planning projects, etc.

    Advice to Management

    project management is key to keep people engaged and challenged.

  2. Front desk for Community Services (Recreation Facility Attendant 1) was a pretty good gig.

    Pros

    My direct supervisor was fabulous and fair; Most co-workers are friendly and fun; The pay was decent for the position; They trained us well and provided on-going training.

    Cons

    Scheduling shifts seemed difficult; Upper management lacked in backing up onsite supervisors; An overload of information for what ought to be a simple position; Out-of-date database system and the computer network need a serious upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management ought to back up their front line staff and onsite supervisors (Recreation Facility Attendants 2) more consistently; SERIOUSLY consider streamlining the CLASS database to make it more user-friendly; Make the schedules regular so employees can arrange their lives accordingly.
