    Pros

    Very nice people, excellent medical insurance. Lots of paid time off, Union pay scale, uniforms supplied and laundered. decent pay

    Cons

    It is definately a time clock punching company. Be sure to be on time with no excuses and ready to work.

    Advice to Management

    A bit more compassion towards family situations and less he said she said petty disputes would be nice. Human Resources is great

    Pros

    Decent (but eroding) benefits - many great, hardworking people in middle management and in the ranks.

    Cons

    Top administrator snoozes through meetings. No cohesion between department heads. Many department leaders hold information as a form of power. Everybody operates in a vacuum.

    Advice to Management

    #1. Wake up and pay attention. Slumbering in a puddle of drool is not attractive or professional. #2. Develop organizational communication.
    #3. Recognize the people in the middle and lower ranks (and the few productive dept. heads) who are carrying the load for the entire organization.
    #4 Cut your losses while you're ahead - i.e. clean house of the bumblers and the ones who take advantage of the sleepy headed CEO.
    The City of Billings has potential to be a better, more effective organization. There are good and willing workers at all levels but the leader needs to lead.
