Pros

Overall good people work at the City
Decent benefits overall, when compared to private companies
City Council supportive
Current Mayor

Cons

Politics often override common sense
Former City Managers and Former Deputy Mayor were out of touch with City what was best for City

Advice to Management

Current Mayor is a great asset to the City, and has the best interest of the City. Glad former leadership has (mostly) moved on.

    I worked at City Of Fresno as a contractor

    Pros

    I worked in several divisions. Leadership and management varied widely. Most were dedicated public servants. Pay was fair. Benefits for salaried EEs are good.

    Cons

    Political influence in management. At times, City Council influence overrides professional behavior. In some divisions, lack of management competence is demoralizing.

    Advice to Management

    Develop meaningful prelationships with the EEs doing the work. Develop working relationships with labor organization reps before you find yourself in an oppositional situation.
