Pros

For single people or those with one other family member, the least costly medical benefit is free.

Typical office politics, acts of favoritism, over worked, under paid

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your staff. If you have well treated, paid and respected employees, the agency could be so much better for all that encounter it.

    I have been working at Oakland Housing Authority

    Pros

    benefts are reasonably good considering it is a government job. But salary is lower for housing representatives than it used to be.

    Cons

    terrible leadership. They go to seminars and trainings to learn how to use all the buzzwords and then try to apply their abstract principles to an environment where it is not suited. Employee morale is very low. Especially since housing representatives have been reclassified to hourly employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management who is well educated but also has strong practical experience in the field and who know what it takes to get the job done.

    I worked at Oakland Housing Authority full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growth, perks, hours, benefits. Great Chief and ability to grow as an officer. You have many different ways to and options to learn about various units. CALEA approved department. Family feel.

    Cons

    Certain Sergeants and officers are shown favoritism and unfortunately it is the ones with bad values and character flaws. This leaks out into the culture and it affects very negatively. Male to female ratio is big.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall the department is great, just the usual political issues. I believe in the Chief.
