    I have been working at City of Fremont California as an intern

    Pros

    I have worked for the city for many years. Great place to work, great people to work with, and supportive management. This place is like family.

    Cons

    A bit boring , but this is probably due to my position. It could also be run a bit more efficiently. Not a huge emphasis on customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Maybe encourage goal planning and achievement. Maybe pay a little more. You are very supportive but perhaps challenge team members more.

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

    Pros

    I love the commute and the park location where I worked. Loved working with the kids and the historic nature of Ardenwood Farms.

    Cons

    The salary was very much in line with the job requirements and expectations. The work was very easy and the hours were just the right amount.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the bar for the job requirements and the salary and you will get a much better return on your investment in the form of happier campers.

    I have been working at City of Fremont California (More than 10 years)

    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.

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

    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.
