Unfair, Hostile and toxic work environment
Great benefits, very poor management and team work. Lots of very unfair treatment, toxic and hostile work environment and employees. They opportunities are there, but unless you know someone in higher management, you are not going anywhere! Didn't like the fact that if you transferred to another department and job, you boss can say anything bad about you whether true or not! Violation of HR rules when it comes to reference check with transfers. Low starting pay of $13.75, take out too much money out of your check, management pressured you to give to United Way when you barely make money yourself! Office politics, very bureaucratic.

Worst department in the City is Human Services! Very unfair and crooked management! Other departments are better than others.

Don't waste your time
You are not given much information from the get go. For example, you are not told that you have to provide for your own parking during the interview and hiring process. You are not told that if you work in the downtown area, that you receive a parking stipend (still not enough to cover the cost). You are not told that you get a bus pass.

Management here is old school. Promotions are given according to seniority or if you're a the preferred (political) choice. Be prepared for extreme micro-management. It is a very mediocre scenario because of this. Everyone is comfortable and not in any hurry to accomplish their job duties. No wonder it takes forever for things to get done around here.


If you have a lot of education and experience, you will not get far unless you know someone in a top position. Management doesn't like outside ideas or suggestions on how to improve things. And it's always someone else's fault why something goes wrong. No accountability!


Salaries are not competitive. Everyone receives a mediocre annual performance review so that there is not much of a raise if you are salaried.
