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

    Pros

    Job security is better than in private sector.

    Cons

    Zero morale. Management could not care less about employees. You will be nothing but a number. Advancement opportunities are based on nepotism and favoritism. Qualifications, merit, and seniority mean nothing. Pay raises are non-existent for personnel below senior management. Discrimination runs rampant.

    Advice to Management

    You can only mistreat and abuse your employees for so long. Your improprieties will come back to haunt you.

    Hire more people from outside El Paso to gain more perspectives

    I worked at City of El Paso full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good first starter job out of college

    Cons

    Morale is low in the department I worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Worked with WIC. Management is to many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Needs to work on interperonal communications skills amd leadership skills.

    I have been working at City of El Paso full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working for the government entity because I feel that my job is more secure than working for a private company.

    Cons

    The yearly pay is less than what the private companies offer.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep all your documents in order.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at City of El Paso full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid holidays, 7:30-4:00 work schedule, flexible with time off or coming in late.

    Cons

    Top level are backstabbers, watch your back. Suprevisors need more training to be supervisors. Seniority takes precedence over experience.

    Advice to Management

    Interact more with your people instead of making them feel you are superior. A level of compassion goes a long way. You can hold a title of supervisor or director but that in no way makes you a leader.

    Pros

    Call volume was adequate to gain good experience, training depending on battalion was frequent enough to stay fresh on skills and work safely when we got fires. Most people/coworkers we worked with had a positive attitude and were close to eachother,

    Cons

    low pay, no realistic firefighting training

    Advice to Management

    continue to grow in the direction they are, admin was good, chiefs are taking the Dept in a good modern direction.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Good work environment
    Get to make a positive impact
    Interesting work
    Lots of opportunities for advancement
    Easy to get along with coworkers and management
    Awesome 4 day a week, 10 hour a day schedule

    Cons

    There have not been a lot of cons. Sometimes human resources can be fairly bureaucratic to deal with, but no real complaints.

    Advice to Management

    I think you do a good job finding employees who truly want to make El Paso a better place. Maybe do some more recruiting outside of the city to draw in more employees from outside the area to bring a wider perspective.
