Optimism & equity stressed always
Although the budget will be reduced and employees’ duties transformed, the leaders continue to emphasize a noble purpose of service and unity at all levels.

Additionally, the City of Dallas is committed to the wellness and care of current and furloughed employees.

It's a really great place to work.
I really enjoyed working for the City of Dallas Water Utility and I learned a lot of new ways of doing things in the trade that I was not familiar with before I started there. The other employees who I worked with were all very helpful and hardworking people. I came to greatly appreciate every one who helped me become familiar with the facilities quickly.

No
The pay is insulting for the work expected.
Great diversity. Most management was approachable. Others (60%), serious power trips. There are the clicks between management and employee.
Pros
Nice, diversity

If you love what you do, recreation and community work, this is the job for you. You can have ideas and implement them at work, they are open for staff to have new ideas, plan events, programs...etc
You can advance in the company, they will have promotional opportunities.

dungeon with poor air quality assistant office manager was a know it all pretentious person with breath that could make a train take a dirt road

It's a job!
This place is petty and vindictive. It's not the job but the people that are in so called charge. They are a jealous bunch of people. There is no new type of training unless you are the friend of a friend or a family member. The best part of the day is at 5 pm. Time to go home!

Smack room area in our office area
I was the employee health nurse for the City of Dallas for 4 1/2 years and I enjoyed my work from 1998 to 2002. I left because of my husband's illness and after he was well enough for me to return to work I became a DISD school nurse because, the City of Dallas eliminated the in house employee health clinic, and now contracts with Care Now Clinic.

There is no typical day at work at The City of Dallas. Any new knowledge or skill could be learned each day depending on the crisis. We have had technicians killed on the job, customers killed on the job, etc. Anything could and does happen such as weather events (tornados) or terrorism.
