Difficult to manage the politics and stress
Director of Corporate Learning & Development (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 17, 2017
There are many talented, motivated employees at the Port of San Diego. Many opportunities for growth and challenge. I learned to work with a variety of departments that performed very different functions. When I started, the airport was a part of the Port.

Public Agency Moving Forward in a Private Mindset
Energy Intern (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 29, 2017
I think now is a great time to work at the Port more than ever before.
-Typical day for most people consists of a lot of meetings. Most of the agency's work revolves around the Board Meeting which requires lots of documentation well in advance
-As an intern I learned and was exposed to a lot. As someone from the private/nonprofit sector I learned that public agencies take a long time to process anything
-Management is predominantly old-fashioned and conservative, though there are some new, fresher minds trying to shake things up
-Workplace culture is also transforming. Their recent rebrand has shifted the overall mindset to be more progressive and forward thinking; People Strategies and Blue Tech are trying to bring innovation into internal operations as well as external collaborations
-Hardest part is finding a balance with this transitional stage they are in
-Most enjoyable part are definitely the people. These are some of the most productive and positive co-workers I've ever had. Every day I find myself smiling and laughing during and in between meetings.
Pros

The hardest part of the job
HR Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 28, 2016
Working at Port of San Diego was ok, The hardest part of the job was the training by several different people trying to teach me different ways to do one job, and being told I was doing the job incorrect. Never knew which was really the right way.

i had to scan documentation into the computer, I also had to do filing. Another task was to answer the phone and transfer calls to my superiors. I had to clean, organize and maintain a positive environment. I enjoy every part of the job.
