IT skills and talent not honed enough...

IT Staff (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at City of San Diego

ProsYears of service with the City of San Diego give one an edge in keeping his or her job when its "layoff" time due to seniority level. This organization will do its best to transfer staff affected by reduction in force (RIFS) to other departments that may have similar positions that are available.

ConsEven admitted by senior management, It's very challenging to compete with fellow applicants in interviewing for a position one is very qualified for due to hiring department's preference in hiring personnel that already have served for them. In other words, hiring departments will still conduct interviews for formality sake, but they already have someone in mind for them to hire, and it's usually the person they want to promote within their department.

Advice to Senior ManagementCity of San Diego management should encourage its staff to show and serve their best skills plus provide continuous ways of improving their skills especially in the field of IT which is ever changing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
