    I worked at Mesa full-time

    Pros

    Four 10 hour day work week with Friday's off.

    Cons

    Depending who you work for, very controlling, non-trusting, non-equal treatment. Zero flexibility with little communication and training. Favoritism is abundant. Opinions and ideas are not solicited nor encouraged. Extreme micro-managed environment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly and ethically with equal opportunities. The HR Dept is pro-management and unethical with regard to confidentiality and needs to understand that no matter the person’s title, situation, or length of service, ‘honesty and ethics’ applies to all, as does the accountability of such. Train managers to truly set the example by walking the talk relative to the City’s core values.

    I have been working at Mesa full-time

    Pros

    4 day work week. Flexible work hours depends on department and manager. Great vacation and sick leave and benefits. Health center available to employees and family members covered on employee's insurance.

    Cons

    Political; nature of the beast. Too many that need to retire but stay on and do next to nothing. Once people make it past the probationary period it is nearly impossible to get rid of them. Too many hide behind just that.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Mesa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The City benefits are terrific, and your positions are protected much more than a normal company.

    Cons

    Employees that do not feel they need to excel at their jobs, hiring freeze within the City for 5+ years so no raises for anyone, bureaucratic paperwork, and most importantly extremely poor high-level management.
    The Executive Director only believes in BEING right, instead of DOING what's right. No creativity, collaboration, or knowledge of how to communicate between departments about goals, productivity or teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    That list is too long and they wouldn't believe it anyway.

    Pros

    Good healthcare benefits and good vacation and sick day policies

    Cons

    They keep laying off staff

    Advice to Management

    Stop making bad budget decisions. Upper Mgmt. is overpaid, and Middle mgmt is underpaid, or first to be laid off.
