Administrative Secretary - Public Works (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 25, 2014
I typically start my day off with responding to emails/voicemails. I've learned a great deal about Public Works and working with a City council. Management is supportive and easy to talk to. The hardest part is fighting boredom and watching individuals around that are compensated more and do less while you also do their job. The most enjoyable part are the people.
I'm able to carpool and I've saved a ton on tolls and gas.
The City of Irvine is an extremely well managed organization.
Information Technology Administrator (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 21, 2014
Irvine stood by its employees through several economic challenges over its 40+ year organizational history. It's comforting to know your employer appreciates dedication, and chooses the path of both fiscal responsibility and loyalty to its workforce. Irvine is one of the few municipalities to make it through the recession with no reduction of public services, solid reserves, solid fiscal management, no forced staff reductions during the recession, and a clear plan for an even brighter future.
Excellent pay and benefits, strong loyalty to employees, solid financial status.
The organization is currently running very lean, with very high productivity demands on a reduced workforce.
