Pros

The City’s benefit package offered substantial medical and dental coverage for individuals (employee) and dependents (spouse and/or children). Competitive with private sector packages.

Cons

•The BMPs observed and practiced by upper-management sometimes adversely affect non-management employees.
•Encountered age-related bias from fellow co-workers and management.
•Promotion and/or education opportunities discussed as inclusive terms of employment were not supported by upper/management during duration of employment. (Multiple requests for job-related training opportunities were denied by management, despite ‘Meets Expectation’ performance reviews.)

Advice to Management

•Encourage employees in personal development. Your employees are your assets.
•Require ‘effective communication’ courses/credits of all management personnel, with potential for 'maintenance' level criteria.
•Communication is a quintessential tool in contemporary America. Effective communication can ‘make’ or ‘break’ a deal.
•Incorporate sensitivity training as part of employee curriculum for all personnel – non/management alike.
•Re-evaluate City’s benefits’ policy and/or documentation on education reimbursement. If employees’ requests are within the guidelines, re-evaluate departmental policies on dis/approving continuing education requests. Be consistent.

    I worked at City of Lenexa, KS full-time

    Pros

    Amazing staff, great people.The city really cares about making the pools the best they can be for their citizens, which includes having great lifeguarding staff to maintain active surveillance and keep patrons safe. A fun and safe environment to work in.

    Cons

    There are not many down sides. The city trains its lifeguards very well, which some may see the training sessions as a hassle or downside, however they are only investing in their workers to make sure they have the tools in their pocket to succeed at the job.

    Advice to Management

    Management did a great job. They also have head guards who are very helpful in working under the managers to be a direct communication link to the lifeguards.
