It's a job
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GA 31401November 9, 2017
Worked with the City of Savannah over 11 years--do not appreciate their faithful employees and regularly tell employees if they are not happy they could find another job. Cut throat environment with incompetent leaders. Was harassed by co-workers constantly but HR refused to act on complaints. Used to enjoy working here but the atmosphere due to numerous leadership changes, low wages and everyone out for themselves attitude has diminished the moral in the organization.
Pros
Secure job
Cons
Poor leadership/management

Great agency to work for.
Parking Enforcement Officer (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAApril 5, 2017
City of Savannah is a great agency to work. The management can be challenging depending on what department you are in. The good thing is you can apply to transfer into what ever department you like. The City can be very political but that's with any city especially one that caters to the tourist like Savannah.
Pros
Great Supervisor, great co-workes, very helpful and vehicle.
Cons
Department does not provide gear to be out in weather conditions. Rain rear, light jacket, umbrella, etc.

Great benefits,could use more money and more more employees the turnover rate is horrible.
Sanitation Worker (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GADecember 30, 2016
The job in itself is not bad,the people there do not promote or encourage each other. Upper management seems to not care about the small people. Some of the employees do not even know who their Superiors are outside of the supervisor. The City Manager and Mayor need to come talk to the employees to see how they feel and get an understanding for what these employees do for the city of Savannah.
