fun place to work, but work ethics could be better.
program director (Former Employee), 888 Washington BLVDAugust 26, 2013
Pros: working with all ages
Cons: lack of communication from supervisors
I worked with Stamford Recreation for many years, as a seasonal/part time employee. I learned communication in managing people is the key to having a successful team, since everyone has a different outlook on working hard. The hardest part of my job was this past summer. I stayed on to work as a Camp assistant since I was not hired for the Recreational – more... Leader position, which I am very qualified for. Instead they hired someone who seemed to be a great fit, unfortunately wasn't a good leader in my view because his idea of communication was to talk about other things and not work. I feel confident leaving Recreation as they have no value in team or communicating the job needed to be done. I loved being creative at my job, working with the public by helping clients on the phone or in person. My favorite part was working with the camps. – less

Recreation Supervisor (Former Employee), Stamford, CTAugust 2, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: job security
As a long time employee I felt like I was a valued employee who was given opportunities for outside the box thinking. The only downside to the job was not knowing how the cities budget was going to effect you and your department.

Good starting out place
Legal Assistant (Current Employee), Stamford, CTApril 25, 2012
Pros: flexible
Cons: part-time
I enjoy working with the people in my office as well as the people in the building. The most fun in my job is getting to know everyone that comes in out of the office. The hardest part of my day is taking train. This job is only part-time and seasonal, but I will miss everyone when the time comes.
