Not a good place to work
Laborer/Driver (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VAMay 13, 2018
Not a good place to work. Management in the T&ES division needs replaced. They only care about them selves. Plus the pay isn't good at all. They want you to be able to preform all job duties and tasks without having the proper man power or tools. Another thing is if you want any overtime. You have to hang out with management after hours and really be liked by them. Not fair at all. Really consider your job options before committing to this job. City of Alexandria...... NOT THE WAY TO GO........

Great place to work for benefits but leadership needs renewal
Administrative Analyst (Current Employee) –  Alexandria, VAJune 18, 2015
City government provides great job satisfaction. One is able to work for the public in a very tangible way. However, leadership still has a very strict mentality on how processes should be done with low desire to change to adapt. The City needs more solid leadership that can stand behind staff supporting change to streamline processes.
Pros
Great health coverage benefits
Cons
Needs more capable leaders
