    Pros

    Salary and benefits are average in most positions with some earning above the median salary compared to other companies. They offer education reimbursement.

    Cons

    Senior leadership and board are constantly looking to cut money from salaries and benefits. Pension and civil service is going away. They have quit hiring positions when people retire. Rumors of selling jea from inside company and some push from city council. Promotion is impossible unless you know certain people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees. Quit the shady hiring practices. Start treating your employees with respect.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for those that seek it and mediocre employees that don't.

    Cons

    Chaotic at times with no real direction and too much politics.

    Advice to Management

    Layoff our pension and get rid of the slackers.

    Pros

    Constant Work and Overtime allowed, some good people there but the Bad overshadowed the good in every way

    Cons

    Very Poor Management, Working Environment Horrific, In-fighting and back biting galore, If you are not "In" with certain people you're "Out", No one that's a "union rep" was happy especially to see "New Blood" even though they are making in excess of $20 per hour, they could care less about the People of the City they serve, not remotely open to new ideas no matter the possibility of said ideas assistance, double standard possibly even illegal tactics on a customer/former employee basis, this list could go on forever,..

    Advice to Management

    LEARN HOW TO MANAGE PROPERLY, your employees are not numbers, take a GOOD look at whom you have in higher up positions, and if there are complaints on the same individuals consistently in the hierarchy of your management team,...YOU MIGHT WANT TO INVESTIGATE THEM

    Pros

    Decent benefits, and depending on who you work with, you might get an adjusted time frame for work

    Cons

    Pay is terrible for engineers and computer techs, contract for proffesional empolyees is awful. Upper management doesn't seem to care about their employees at all.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying your engineers and computer techs the salaries that are atleast in the same ball park with the market.

    Pros

    It's just a place to work.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't seem to care about their employees at all. They are removing civil service and currently in the middle of pension changes. Not honest with the employees or unions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to care about your employees with the unbeatable team initiative. It hurts our feelings when you lie about pension changes, insurance premiums, compensation surveys, and salary increases.
