Not much advancement opportunity depending upon job
Associate (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – April 3, 2018
Workplace culture needs improvement, higher management believes they are doing a good job but a survey should be conducted amongst all employees, particularly those in lower paid jobs. If you come in at a certain level you are okay, but it will be challenge for lower level positions (depending upon the job).

Recreation Leader (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – August 29, 2017
Started off on the bottom and worked up. Never the same day twice. You get to meet people from the community and feel like you're giving back while getting paid for it. Only real complaint is that you have to many mini managers.

Intern (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – March 22, 2016
Working for this local government was great. The engine of this city is driven by people that care for their home town. I have no complaints about any facet of the city employees or the functions of the local government.
The employees are great. Management in the Public Works Sewer Division is the worse I have ever been around.
Wastewater Systems Crewleader (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – February 25, 2016
The employees know what they are doing and make the mangement team at the sewer department look good. Management is not only under qualified they are pathalogical liars that will do anything to stay out of trouble. In the last 8 years under this new managemnet team they have had ouside contractors come in to make the enviroment better. Everytime the outside contractors stated that management was the problem and yet HR department and Public Works department did nothing.
As a whole The City of RIverside is a great place to work and most Divisions are great to work for. Except for a few bad managers this would be agreat place to work.
