Workers' Compensation CLAIMS AIDE (Current Employee), 1200 Third Avenue, Suite 1000, San Diego CA 92101October 13, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: it's a fishbowl! :)
After working for the City of San Diego for 20 years I can look back with pride and say it is very much relationship oriented, not just about doing the right thing, although that is extremely important. Integrity and ethics are a huge part of my employment with the City and I can honestly say I have done my part. People make mistakes but it takes honesty, courage and humility to admit, step forward and correct. I didn't realize when I began work for the muncipality that City employees would become part of my family. The love and respect I receive from the people I am closest with or have served in some capacity remind me that I did the right thing for the right reasons.

Pool Guard I (Former Employee), San Diego, CAApril 23, 2014
Pros: free entry to all city pools
Cons: seasonal hours
Working at a pool as a lifeguard was an incredible experience. I learned first aid and rescue skills. I got to meet future employees of the medical field. The hardest part of my job was sitting out on the lifeguard chair when it was storming real bad. What I loved about being a lifeguard was that I got to teach water aerobics and swim lessons.

Claims Clerk (Former Employee), San Diego, CAMarch 11, 2014
My supervisor and manager were very wishy washy, never knew when they were going to be happy or upset with you. Sometimes, you have to just make the best of whatever life throws at you to keep on keeping on.

Managing, Network Administrator (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: great benifits

During my time at the CoSD there was a strung culture driving civil servants to service tax payers as customers. I do not know if this is still true, but it made for an energetic and concerned work force.
