    Pros

    Very flat organization. Management is approachable and open to ideas for improvement and efficiency. Open, honest communication from leaders and management to employees.

    Cons

    Support depth is non-existant and knowledge transfer is weak. Many functions are supported by a single individual. In some cases, when key people are unavailable, progress is difficult and some issues must be held for return of the individual.

    Advice to Management

    These are tough times for government and the employees who support the work of the organization. With deep cuts to salaries and benefits on the horizon, employees need some assistance to cope.

    Pros

    The City of Lodi pays the employee contribution portion of the CalPers retirement. The City of Lodi will also match up to 3.5% of employee base salary put into a 401k.

    Cons

    The tough financial times (not just for the City of Lodi) have caused cutbacks in various departments. Also, due to the recession, any types of raise are currently out of the question.

    Advice to Management

    The management in my department is doing an outstanding job. Even though we have been stricken with budget cuts, management has still been able to make sure we have what we need.
