Not bad to work for, but remember you are just a number

Police Officer (Current Employee)
Mesa, AZ

I have been working at Mesa full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPay is good. Benefits are very good. It still has somewhat of a small town mentality so you feel a part of a group.

ConsNot very good at money management. Not too many attractions so tax money is very lacking in hard times. Raises may not come for many years.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be nice if the little guy was given some weight when they spoke instead of always relying on top management to be right.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Mesa is unable to reward upcoming talent due to the entrenched policies that promote experience over ability.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Mesa, AZ

I have been working at Mesa

ProsMesa provides is employees with a great benefits package and competitive pay ranges.

ConsThe majority of Mesa management are control freaks.... constantly looking to protect their position within the organization rather than developing and promoting employees.

Tread Carefully

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mesa full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe City benefits are terrific, and your positions are protected much more than a normal company.

ConsEmployees that do not feel they need to excel at their jobs, hiring freeze within the City for 5+ years so no raises for anyone, bureaucratic paperwork, and most importantly extremely poor high-level management.
The Executive Director only believes in BEING right, instead of DOING what's right. No creativity, collaboration, or knowledge of how to communicate between departments about goals, productivity or teamwork.

Advice to Senior ManagementThat list is too long and they wouldn't believe it anyway.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Poor organizational planning and outlook

Police Officer (Former Employee)
Mesa, AZ

I worked at Mesa full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood potential to have a clean run city

ConsTop heavy administration without checks and balances on their activities. They do not value their employees. They make alot of unfulfilled promises and treat the employees like their enemies.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement accountability to command staff and have an external auditor check into their business practices. There is a lot of activity they are involved with that is left unchecked.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
