    I worked at Mesa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great hours, coworkers, and benefits.

    Cons

    Management. The only problem I ran into was regarding a promotion. After my supervisor's left, I was given the positions responsibilities, on top of my own. I asked about a raise many times but approval never came. Instead, it stayed on hold, and I was expected to overextend and be content with doing two jobs.

    I have been working at Mesa full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The City offers great health benefits and retirement.

    Cons

    At least for my job, I am expected to work 60+ hours a week, every week on salary and to just "be happy I have a job." Well, I am happy I have a job, but it would be nice if management showed a little more appreciation and respect for the work some of us put in. Promotional opportunities are practically non-existent. COLA's went away years ago. Raises were frozen for many years. It's hard not to get discouraged.

    Mesa is one of the largest cities in Arizona but is stuck in the past. It is extremely conservative, and not just because of the predominantly Mormon population. Any ideas that challenge the status quo are seen as threatening and objectionable. No wonder there are so many old people here and the downtown business are scratching their heads wondering how to attract a younger demographic and night life. The sidewalks roll up at 5pm and there is nothing to do here for those of us that are under 50 and don't want to go to bed at 8pm.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Some of the younger people have some really good ideas, but management tends to still do the same old things or only listen to tenured employees who have been here forever. Sometimes new ideas work!


  4. "Mesa is unable to reward upcoming talent due to the entrenched policies that promote experience over ability."

    Pros

    Mesa provides is employees with a great benefits package and competitive pay ranges.

    Cons

    The majority of Mesa management are control freaks.... constantly looking to protect their position within the organization rather than developing and promoting employees.

    Pros

    It's small and there's more bonding with employees.

    Cons

    Not very compassionate about emergencies

    Advice to Management

    Better communication about forms and be truthful about orientations at new airport because at DFW we were just thrown out there

    I worked at Mesa full-time

    Pros

    State retirement benefits, trying to improve, can give back to community in a sense

    Cons

    Very political at top levels, sense of entitlement by some, still trying to overcome old mindsets, many have worked no where else so they don't know anything different

    Advice to Management

    really listen to feedback from employees and citizens and act on it openly

    Pros

    There was plenty of room for creativity and the atmosphere with my fellow employees was great, everyone was friendly and supportive. The flexibility was pretty good as well if anything came up it was easy to talk to my supervisor.

    Cons

    The salary is not that great for the amount of time and Planning that it took to be successful. I think having a little bit of a raise and some kind of benefits would be extremely beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training when conducting orientation so that your employees can be equipped to do their very best in their job.
