Semi-Skilled Laborer (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – January 25, 2019
The management is anti worker and they try to work you, without regard to your health or wellbeing. They browbeat you and the moral is horrible! It’s a lot of cronyism and favoritism with small cliques.
Foreman/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – January 22, 2019
The City of Philadelphia has been Great to me and my Family. I've achieved alot. Going from a labor to a skilled labor. A mechanical broom driver to a High density Trash truck driver. Currently being a forman.
POLICE OFFICER (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 26, 2018
On most days you will work a 8-hour tour, but are subject to remaining for up to an additional 8 hours, pending circumstances. Additionally, due to recent law changes and current social climate, job risk is high, but pay compensation is on par with most other police departments.
Philadelphia (Former Employee) – Philadelphia – October 20, 2018
I thought leaving my old job was the best idea to there and I was wrong. This place does not!! care about the tax payers or the workers. It's like a slave ship. Only get advanced if you know someone or kiss you know what?? Benefits were ok time off is the only Pro. Management are either old and bitter or middle aged with attitudes. Supplies and machines never works.You work with mice birds bedbugs and fleas on a daily bases. You have to be on the 4th fl and up to be treated like a human. Work there at your own risk. It's a toss up!!
Tax Clearance Data Service Support Clerk (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 29, 2018
The work itself is not very difficult, sometimes fast paced depending on time of year. Management creates hostile & fearful work environments & nothing is ever done. Most people want to leave the city for that reason but stay for the benefits.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 2, 2018
The work culture has changed in the last 5 years. A lot of new workers are hired from outside consulting agencies and tend to be younger people. The outside consultants tend to gang up on the civil service employees and do not respect people that have been with the City employment for longer than 20 years. Not a stable environment and not a place to get a job. I advise young people to search for other jobs and not to get caught up in government employment.
Semi-Skilled Laborer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 15, 2018
It is a good place to work.The down side is that the cost of living is going up, but the salary is not going up to match it. The work is good, and i like it. I just want to be able to take care of my family without working two jobs.
Decline to answer. (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 9, 2018
The City is a big machine, and there is a great deal of bureaucracy. There are great people working here and plenty of opportunities to do good work, but there's a lot of trauma and stress that fosters a toxic working environment if you're not intentional about self-care.
Opportunities to do good, job stability, benefits.
Tax Analyst II (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 11, 2018
A typical day at work provided a lot of autonomy within my own caseload....management and culture very bureaucratic as can be expected in government...the hardest part of the job was efforts to think outside the box, be creative in order to be more productive, creative leadership, was not embraced...most enjoyable part?: A salary...
Water Treatment Plant Operations Crew Chief (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 14, 2018
The job itself can be very exciting. there's a lot of process work that allows you to witness water treatment from start to finish. However, employee morale is at an all time low. Low staffing, very little overtime, small salaries and poor attendance has created a dismal work environment.
