    • "Executive Staff"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at City of Rochester full-time for more than 20 years

        Pros

        There are many talented and committed employees.

        Cons

        When in the higher levels of management, your job is subject to the whim of elected official(s). Too often, those at the top tiers are obviously inept at their jobs, yet remain due to some political favor, while long-time subordinates (and the city) suffer at the hands of incompetence.

        Advice to Management

        There's no telling management anything because the current mayor is capricious and favor-bound.

        Pros

        The people that you work with directly are usually very pleasant to work with and it has a really laidback vibe most of the time.

        This is an extremely unprofessional work environment. Full time staff can be petty and vindictive and have no idea how to properly handle any type of social situations. There's not really much room for upward advancements.

        Show more appreciation for your staff and be more professional.
