Not a very good place to work
Sr Staff Assistant (Former Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXAugust 7, 2018
Pay is very low and no chances of advancement unless you know someone. They have ok benefits but would not recommend as a good place to work. They need to offer more competitive pay.

The gas department is a great place to work, there is plenty to do and everyone is willing to help. The management at the gas department ensures you are fully trained.

Highly politisized Environment
Engineering (Former Employee) –  City of Corpus ChristiJune 6, 2017
At the top are ALL politicians from the private sector that channel work and large compensation to their old firms.

No chance to go up, unless you play the game. If you have no morals and no loyalty to the tax payers, you may go far. Just remember you will have to crush others to prove your worth.

It's all set up to fleece the taxpayer to line the pockets of Consultants. If you have no morals and no loyalty to the tax payers, you may go far.

This culture is permeates every thing and cannot be changed.
Pros
You can waste your life, in a stable job, as long as you don't speak up or do ANYTHING to divert attention from the management
Cons
Soul Crushing realization of wasting your life

Being a 911 Dispatcher at the City of Corpus Christi was one of the most rewarding jobs I'd ever had. The people were great and the teamwork was amazing. Management was great. I'd have stayed if the pay was better.

Not the health district
WIC (Former Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXJanuary 13, 2016
The health district is managed pretty poorly especially the WIC department. The manager micromanages and is very clueless. She perpetuates a horrible work place culture, hostile work environment and low morale. There is no opportunity for advancement or extra assigned duties. Don't be fooled! Even after complaints the higher ups at the health department have made no attempts to fix any issues. Do not work here
Pros
1 hour lunches
Cons
No support, low morale, hostile work environment, favoritism, lack of leadership
