    I have been working at City of Coppell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The city offers great benefits to their employees and they are generally a great employers. There are a lot of programs for employees for training.

    Cons

    Manager for particular department isn't properly suited for the job...no relevant experience and puts his duties on others then takes credit because he doesn't have any idea of the actual trade of his job. I believe it would be good for City Management or HR to go around to departments (anonymously) and ask the subordinate employees what they think about their management (department) and assess if there is a need for change.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with relevant experience and regularly evaluate them to make sure they are representing the city in a positive way.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at City of Coppell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary is rather decent but that is really it. There are no other pros to working for this organization.

    Cons

    -Unprofessional
    -Unfriendly
    -Disorganized
    -Low quality leadership

    There are a plethora of problems at this organization from shady management, unprofessional director level staff, and employees who collect a paycheck for just coming to work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't run hard working staff down and allow true talent to leave. Hire the right upper management the first time.
