Pros

There is a lot of work for anyone who'd like to optimize procedures

Cons

Nobody have been trained to the "new software" installed in 2009... we all discover new / odd things everyday.

    Pros

    Port employees were encouraging through the whole internship program.

    Cons

    For student interns, the maximum amount of hours capped at 20 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Have specific assignments set out for interns ahead so that there is a steady flow of work.

    Great benefits, but debt load and imminent wave of retirements will continue to limit long-term growth

    Pros

    Motivated and (generally) friendly coworkers, great benefits and good public sector salaries. Current executive team has a positive outlook and is poised to be able to capitalize on opportunities.

    Cons

    Lots of internal turmoil over the last few years, and current economic outlook is limited due to enormous debt burden from previous projects. Generally more business-like as compared to some government agencies, but still an independent department of the City of Oakland.

    Advice to Management

    Still seems to be a major disconnect between the outlook and perspective (challenges and opportunities) as seen by senior team and those on the rank and file level.
