    Pros

    You really feel like an asset. They invest in their employees and encourage them to grow and improve your skills. They allow for innovation and are always willing to at least listen to a new idea.

    Cons

    There are some employees with an old school union perspective that believe they are owed since they have worked there for so long rather than because of their performance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage employees to be innovative.

    Pros

    Flexability of hours and work schedule in most positions in most departments.
    Short commute for me. The City is in the running for the new home of the Oakland A's. This will bring more revenue and jobs to the city and will help benefit the community as a whole. This will also help attact additional businesses to the city . this will also bring in additional high end housing, along with some additional affordable housing as well.
    This will also aid in the opening of an additional fire station. If this project happens it will also help the city move forward in advancing the technology within the city as well as to the public.

    Cons

    Some managers are promoted based on years with the city verses ability

    Advice to Management

    Train middle and Senior Managers properly. Improve on not micromanaging so much.

    Pros

    the retirement and other benefits are good, like vacation and management leave. The other things that are good about this employer is that it's close to my home

    Cons

    having a high work load with out enough staff to preform the work, along with not balancing the work duties evenly among the staff.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management needs to be more responsive to the needs of the line staff. All they care about is results at all cost, even to the employees health, both physical and mental

    I have been working at City of Fremont California part-time

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, great people and welcoming inclusive culture. People celebrate and appreciate your contributions and your birthday!

    Cons

    As with many governmental organizations, things can take a long time to change or get done. I don't think this system of top down management works terribly well.
