    Poor organizational planning and outlook

    Police Officer (Former Employee)
    Mesa, AZ

    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

    Tread Carefully

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    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

    Budget woes make working here dicey

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood healthcare benefits and good vacation and sick day policies

    ConsThey keep laying off staff

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

    No, I would not 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

    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.

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

    Police Officer (Current Employee)
    Mesa, AZ

    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
