Great city, high level of services to the community

Manager (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

ProsActive, participatory residents and council. Historically a world-wide environmental leader. Great leadership, thoughtful planning and a strong sense of purpose have proven that government can both lead and be fiscally responsible. Excellent location and diverse culture.

ConsCity leadership is no longer interested in leading. Untalented, "yes men and women" are put in many key management positions and won't make decisions unless the path is already paved. Fear of making mistakes is greater than willingness to do what needs to be done, impeding progress on virtually every front. Stagnation has set in.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a risk. Make a decision. Have a vision and lead.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
