Marketing Communications Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZJune 19, 2018
This is a city in change, more positive than negative. Tough economy when I left and they gave early retirement to over 200 employees - taking them down to 1970's staffing levels. I understand this has changed and the city is seeing an economic upturn.

It was a great place to work

The people in the city of Mesa should vote very differently whenever the opportunity arises so that the new City Council has direct and distinct objectives that can be viewed by the public.

City of no money
Police Officer (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZNovember 5, 2017
They don't have enough money to provide the best resources nor to higher the best management. The city would be better off changing some of it's services to private or altering the taxes so they could afford more. The benefits stink because they are self insured.
