Though the City of Bloomington leads in benefits and pay, the overall structure and mentality is over the top focused on work over personal life. The leadership within the department struggles to hold supervisors accountable for poor leadership decisions and hold personal grudges that prevent more than qualified personnel from specialty positions and leadership roles. Though overall I do enjoy this department, the politics of the department can be tiring and frustrating. This is a department I still enjoy working with/for given the circumstances but I am keeping my options open. This message review does not reflect a majority of the department staff, but sadly reflects mostly the leadership positions within it.
"The Bloomington Way" mentality.
