    I worked at City of Henderson, Neveda full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The City of Henderson is ranked in the top 10 safest cities in America and it is a direct reflection of its residents, businesses, and police department working together. The City has seen explosive growth and the police department managed to keep pace with leveraging technology and excellent relationships. While the ratio of officers per thousand residents remains dangerously low at 1.2/1000, the neighboring Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has partnered with Henderson to form task forces and other force multipliers to ensure the community stays safe.

    Cons

    While the City of Henderson. Is a mid size city, just below 300,000 residents, the politics within it are rivaling a large city. It's government is a Mayor and 4 person council who appoint a city manager, city attorney, and city clerk to 3 year contracts. The City Manager oversees all departments to include the police department. All other managers and department heads are considered at will employees without any protection such as civil service rules or other contracts.

    If you can manage to stay and reach full time, benefits are good.
    Some are willing to work with your hours if you're in school

    I have been working at City of Henderson, Neveda part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great job for the first year that I worked there. I had a lot of friends at work and truly enjoyed coming into work everyday. Management treated us well and cared about us.

    Cons

    Recently management has had some changes and they truly try to take advantage of everyone working there. They nickle and dime their employees to death, have the lowest wages for lifeguards in Las Vegas, and have complete disregard for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    At least attempt to raise wages because they are becoming more and more ridiculous as other lifeguard positions become available and conditions get worse and worse at the city.

    Pros

    The City of Henderson was Flexible with scheduling and availability. I always felt prepared to respond to emergencies if anything were to happen. Training was good if a little excessive.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. They got raises nearly every year while their subordinates had no increase in wages. Management rarely rewarded employees for hard work or taking imitative. In turn they constantly belittled and threatened employees for small infractions. Many times the entire staff would be disciplined for one persons infractions.

    Advice to Management

    You employ almost entirely High School students. Many of which work because their parents make them not because they want to. Recognize this! Reward them for hard work and make a positive work environment.

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

    Pros

    -Supportive co-workers.
    -Good benefits including a four day work week.
    -Atmosphere slowly improving.
    -Probably the best municipal government to work for in the Las Vegas valley.

    Cons

    -Managers and some supervisors well protected and disconnected from front line employees.
    -Communication between upper management and employees is poor and discouraged.
    -Cronyism used for promotions and assignments. Most employees have little input.
    -Large differences in morale, worker skills, and training opportunities between different departments.
    -Little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    -Focus on what benefits residents instead of spending time and money getting more certifications.
    -Hold managers and supervisors to the same standards as other employees.
    -Remove managers who are holding back employees morale and innovation. Employee reviews for supervisors and managers would show where your employees see problems.
    -Positive changes in recent months need to be followed through. Surveying employees nice but not helpful if no changes.
