A general disregard for professionalism in the workplace.
Confidential (Current Employee) –  City HallJuly 20, 2018
A general disregard for professionalism in the workplace. No training. Minimal 2.5% raise annually and NO bonus compensation for showing initiative and pursuing skills and further education to achieve advancement. Extra tasks and workload piled on with position vacancies that last for many months with no additional compensation. Co-workers back stab at any opportunity. No inter-departmental cooperation. Management is mired in dogma and territorialism. They fear exposure of their incompetency with irrational poor unprofessional management. They need several people to take their long overdue retirements and bring in some new fresh blood that actually wants to better serve the people of Glendale and not their own self interests.
Pros
Parking garage
Cons
No chance for advancement

Great place to work short term.
Traffic Signal Technician (Current Employee) –  Glendale, AZAugust 1, 2017
I have been with the City of Glendale for just over 2 years. It is a complete boys club. You have to be in good with certain people to get anywhere. If you disagree with the opinion of a manager then you will be targeted for having an opinion. The professionalism of my department is very questionable.
Pros
Checks don't bounce.
Cons
Managements professionalism is more than questionable.

I like the in field experience. There is pretty much no direction given from upper management, which means you just do what you think you should and hope for the best.

Great benefits. Recent changes have made it difficult to advance in position. One thing that is very positive though is that you are very rarely micromanaged unless you earn it.

Nice place to work that provides excellent benefits to their employees. While there have been times where the political and economic environments have not been conducive to police work, the City of Glendale has always done what is best for their employees.

An excellent experience
Airport Operations Assistant (Former Employee) –  Glendale, AZOctober 3, 2015
My city of Glendale experience was great all the way around. I worked closely with the Director of Aviation coordinating and administering the Glendale airport Operating & Capital budgets, and Airport Master Plan while procuring federal AIP and state matching grants. Identified and prioritized day-to-day airport operational, maintenance and security related tasks/projects in accordance to federal, state, and local regulations, specifically FAR Part 139 and TSA 1542 compliance.
Pros
A little better managed now
Cons
poor arena management agreement
