Work at the City of Stockton
Assistant Civil Engineer (Former Employee), Stockton, CAMarch 9, 2014
Pros: employees where always trying to maintain good work relationships.
Cons: training was sometimes not available when needed.
In general, most employees maintained a professional environment supervisors took responsibility and maintain work relationships with co-workers. Learning opportunists were given to each individuals who demonstrated interest. From working in other larger agencies the one to one attention was there with mentoring. The hardest part of the Job was understanding – more... the project priorities when work load was high and other projects had to be done at a later time. A ping pong table or exercise equipment would have been nice to compensate when walking outside was not practical due to ext ream whether. In general, work was enjoyable but changeling in the five years I worked there. – less

The current environment is very stressful. Management does not seem to care about employees.
Benefits Specialist (Current Employee), Stockton, CANovember 21, 2013
The City of Stockton was a wonderful place to work for many years. However, since the City filed for bankruptcy, the atmosphere is very stressful; management does not care about employees. The City still offers excellent salaries and benefits.

It was a great place to work--job security and good compensation.
Executive Assistant - Police Department (Former Employee), Stockton, CAFebruary 4, 2013
Pros: job security
Cons: inability to promote further without a degree
The City of Stockton is a wonderful place to work. The people there are generally very helpful and most have been there for many years. I had some very good co-workers that helped me along through the many years I worked there. The hardest part of most of my jobs was that it often took a long time to see a project through to completion due to the many – more... hands every document had to go through to get processed. Many times I was able to streamline the process, but even then it took longer than one would like to get something signed. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing that I could truly make a change in how things get done. – less

Working for the city of Stockton every day was really something different. This was my very first job at 15 years of age. I was in charge of taking care of the people in the pool. I also had to help make sure the bathrooms were clean and there was no spider webs everywhere.

Verge of bankruptcy
Retiree (Former Employee), StocktonMay 23, 2012
Pros: the weather is good
Cons: city manager has one primary skill, cutting costs. all services suffer as a result.
Employer is on verge of bankruptcy. Many jobs have been eliminated. As an example, the Police Department is down over 100 employees and crime is now at record levels. Those remaining employees are being stripped of benefits. This was a great place to work five years ago but it can't be recommended now. Anybody wanting to be a municipal employee in CA – more... can work elsewhere for more compensation and benefits in a safer environment. – less

Horrible place to work under Mayor 2011-2012 and City Manager 2011-2012
City Employee (Current Employee), Stockton CAMay 22, 2012
Pros: people
Cons: corruption, bankruptcy, hostile leadership 2011-2012, pay, benefits
The city is probably going bankrupt, which means there will be more pay cuts. The benefits are HORRIBLE! You might as well pay for them on your own. When City Manager 2011-2012 was questioned about the 15%-30% pay cuts that everyone took, EXCEPT the City Manager 2011-2012; The City Manager 2011-2012 said, "If the employees are good enough, they will – more... find work somewhere else."

City Manager 2011-2012 illegally broke all labor contracts, and when he was questioned as to why he didn't take a pay cut, City Manager 2011-2012's response was, "I have a contract". Have fun swallowing that!!!

REMEMBER 2012-2013 CUTS ARE NOT IN. Plan on having TERRIBLE benefits, and another pay cut!!! Buildings are being repossessed, City Manager 2011-2012 doesn't negotiate, he breaks the law, and heads for bankruptcy so nothing can be done about it! – less
