    Pros

    4/10 work week and Health & Wellness Center

    Lack of competent leaders. Nepotism is still allowed. Large organization still managed with 1950's philosophy. People not matched to position.

    Advice to Management

    Use Briggs Meyer test to match people to position. Stop bullying and narcissistic management.

    Pros

    The light rail will hopefully revitalize the city and it's conservative people.

    Cons

    You have to wait for someone to retire to move up the ladder, even if you have better work ethic.

    Pros

    Good potential to have a clean run city

    Cons

    Top 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 Management

    Implement 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Employees 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 Management

    That list is too long and they wouldn't believe it anyway.

    Pros

    Good healthcare benefits and good vacation and sick day policies

    Cons

    They keep laying off staff

    Advice to Management

    Stop making bad budget decisions. Upper Mgmt. is overpaid, and Middle mgmt is underpaid, or first to be laid off.

    Pros

    Great hours, coworkers, and benefits.

    Cons

    Management. The only problem I ran into was regarding a promotion. After my supervisor's left, I was given the positions responsibilities, on top of my own. I asked about a raise many times but approval never came. Instead, it stayed on hold, and I was expected to overextend and be content with doing two jobs.
