    "best job"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at City of Boca Raton (More than a year)

    Pros

    the beaches are so pristine (clean) and the water is turquoise
    few people come to these beaches in comparison with other south florida beaches
    my bosses and coworkers were all loving people who genuinely were passionate about our ecosystems and contributing to the world

    Cons

    the pay wasn't very high so we needed to get second jobs

    Advice to Management

    higher wages, especially because the 10 hour days were very exhausting physically

    I worked at City of Boca Raton full-time

    Pros

    Good hours, Plenty of time off, easy work

    Cons

    Favoritism, extremely poor management at the lower level, hostile environment, high stress (from harassment by superiors), only the toxic ppl survive, competence nor professionalism matters in promotion, disrespectful bosses, mental instability is rampant amongst peers, high drama, if you're not friends with management you'll be miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Reward competence, treat your people fairly and stop setting up the good ones because you feel threatened.

    I have been working at City of Boca Raton (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Utilities is a grade field, our upper management has created a very good way to increase your pay thru licenses

    Cons

    Union contract is bad, immediate bosses are a joke. Disrespectful creating a hostile environment at work

    Advice to Management

    To upper management, communicate more with your operators

    I have been working at City of Boca Raton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Yes, it "LOOKS" like Disney, but Disney is a fantasy land...

    Cons

    Highly political environment. Reality is not relevant - Hearsay is golden and highly rewarded.
    Mentally unstable management.
    Employees are yelled at, orders are barked to you, overall employees are treated like garbage.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "nut jobs" that run this place and do away with "Drop". It is sad to say, but employees in drop have reached the point where they don't care about what happens in the City. They are just killing time.

    Pros

    There are no positive comments to make

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! Favoritism runs wild. Gossip is accepted as truth. Employees are micromanaged to death. No room for growth. If offered a position, RUN in the opposite direction.
