Not the health district
WIC (Former Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXJanuary 13, 2016
The health district is managed pretty poorly especially the WIC department. The manager micromanages and is very clueless. She perpetuates a horrible work place culture, hostile work environment and low morale. There is no opportunity for advancement or extra assigned duties. Don't be fooled! Even after complaints the higher ups at the health department have made no attempts to fix any issues. Do not work here
Pros
1 hour lunches
Cons
No support, low morale, hostile work environment, favoritism, lack of leadership

double standards and very low wages
Utilities Tech (Current Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXApril 9, 2015
This organization would be great to work for if they had people skills. The new pay system is a joke and hinders advancement. Unless you are a suck up or a politician you will be looked over. They hold you to your advancement requirements and let others slide and when you are ready to advance you only receive 10% of your current wage. Which if you see how low the wages are...10% is not much at those rates. The city is in trouble if they don't do something quick. The retirement wave that is headed their way is a giant and with these low wages I could see alot of personnel looking else where for new jobs.(don't blame them). You can't expect to pay your employees little to no money and expect to get great service. It doesn't work that way. Everyone deserves to work for a livable wage. Instead the city thinks its a great idea to 2.5% you until you either max out on your salary or retire which ever occurs first. All I'm saying is take care of the people that take care of you and everything else falls in place.
Pros
you will gain lots of experience to take elsewhere
Cons
low wages

Summary
Park Tech 1 (Former Employee) –  City of Corpus ChristiDecember 1, 2014
Overall a good work environment to work at. Management, on the other hand, would have to work on their ethics within the job. The most enjoyable part of my job was all aspects of it. I do not believe I had a hard part of the job that I ran into at work.
