A great place for engineers
Civil Engineer III (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – April 10, 2016
I worked as an engineer in the Utility Department for 8 years, and they were the most enriching years, both professionally and personally, of my life. I got great technical and managerial guidance, a pay scale comparable to private industry, ample opportunity for continuing education, and a professional and welcoming work environment. I was especially encouraged by the City bucking the statewide trend and expanding their non-discrimination clause to include the LBG (though not, alas, T) community.
Beyond my personal experiences, it appeared that the department was very supportive of EIs and young graduates, and provided a great balance of guidance and independent assignments. It's a great place to grow. I'm hoping that the sales tax base improves, because these guys deserve some job security.
As for the people, I miss them all dearly. Maybe in a few years I'll have them all work for me.
Great benefits, exciting Downtown atmosphere
Bureaucracy was sometimes mysterious, but not terribly so.
