Other Cities could learn from City of Alexandria
City of Alexandria is by far a superior place to work. Pay, benefits/pension, diversity, equity, work-life balance, advancement, positive work environment. Alexandria City runs like a well-oiled machine; with good ethical leadership, efficient initiatives and willingness to try new things for the good of the employees and residents. I've worked in cities with poor leadership and Alexandria sets a gold standard for how well they include and take care of rich residents and poor alike. A great indicator of how a city's doing is how its poor are doing. Alex gets that and takes it seriously. My favorite thing about City of Alex is that they hire talent from across the country with diversity in mind to bring new ideas, perspectives and high competency to their workforce. When you work alongside other talents and leadership that has your back, your standards of a workplace will change forever.
