Corrections Officer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 21, 2017
Supervised over 80 inmates on a day to day operation. I learned how to deal with unruly people and how to d-escalate hostile situations. The hardest part of the day was feeding the inmates. my co-workers was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Management Training for Senior Staff strongly recommended
INTERIM DIRECTOR OF BUDGET AND MANAGEMENT ANALYSIS (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 3, 2017
The staff that reported to me are great people. Driven, self-motivated and eager to get the job done. However, the leadership style of Senior Management hinders the growth and the spirit of the department. The department is in need of Organizational Behavior intervention. Moreover, the City of Atlanta was a great place to work.
Atlanta City Hall is not recommended for the faint-hearted but provides character strengthening opportunities.
Sr. Adminstration Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 27, 2017
If politics is your game, then this is the top place to work in Atlanta. Every day is a new learning adventure, meeting people from around the world, new possibilities open up in an instant. The exposure to multi-cultural activities and thinking is invaluable. The challenges are rewarding. When the pressure is on, everyone has each other back, so to speak. The co-workers and officials are amazing people to listen to, learn from and work with. This was definitely a growing experience.
Good benefits. Privileged access to events and activities. Indoor gym and track.
Uncomfortable office furniture and lighting in my office.
Overall I enjoyed the job and worked well with all co,workers.
Contract Compliance Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 5, 2017
A typical work day was to make a field visit to a vendor who applied for certification as a minority/female business enterprise. I learned how to conduct secretary of state searches to find business owners and I got more experience in reviewing and analyzing business and personal income tax returns.
I was able to perform my duties with very little supervison and made frequent site visits.
At times I was unable to get a vehicle when I had site vists scheduled .
Service Project Analyst (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 13, 2017
Excellent co workers and colleagues; an ability to serve the public; hard to climb the ladder. Mission of work keeps workers focused on a daily basis. Employee moral could be higher thru recognition of their work from supervisors. In general, supervisors are accessible and want to see employees succeed.

Crime Scene Technician (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 15, 2016
Overall the city of Atlanta police is great. There are definitely a lot of people that need to retire or find a field that makes them happy. Unfortunately many are there for the benefits and not the service of the community. There are clicks and there are people who have a hidden agenda. If you can ignore all that and be willing to serve the community everyday and have joy in what you do, you will be fine.
Benefits, service to the community, nice uniforms, knowimg whats truly happening in the community

Great place to work and also a bit dangerous at times. Giving good customer service to visitors as well as inmates. Management is knowledgeable and willing to assist in any way. The great men and women who put their lives on the line each and everyday are some of the bravest in the country. The hardest part about the job is the sometime use of physical force.The most enjoyable part of the job is making a difference in someones life by way of counseling to them.
