If job work/life balance is a priority for you, run from this company as fast as you can. Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – October 12, 2018 Management is a joke. It's managed like it's a Family Dollar store versus an Authority. Please do not leave your current employer for this place. You will regret it. Learned how not to be as a manager and director.
Poor management. If you're not connected, you will never get tapped on the shoulder for a promotion. Don't practice what they preach.

Great 401k options and benefits Workplace culture Professional Administrative Analyst (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI 48226 – October 15, 2017 This company is fairly new due to a bifurcation. There is a great emphasis on training, education and learning. This is good and bad. Sometimes it seems that there are so many mandatory training classes that there is no time to actually get work done.
Positive work environment
I like the culture Organizational Development Manager (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 28, 2017 I recently joined the organization and I am glad I did. There is an emphasis on training and collaboration. All of the people and managers I have met have been very welcoming and helpful.

Not much room for advancement. Team Leader (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – June 3, 2017 Benefits are okay. Management lack interpersonal skills. fast pace and lack of compensation. Not enough staff making the job stressful. Do not value employees. Not a good place to work! Security Officer (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI 48226 – March 11, 2017 Typical Work Day: Punching the time clock, changing into my uniform, heading out to my post to relieve that officer, and interacting with other employees, vendors and contractors. Management: Very untrustworthy management team. At times they would yell and scream. Very unprofessional place to work. What I Learned: Training programs were very helpful...combat gun training, report writing, communication, First Aid, CPR, AED, and Incident Command Center Training. Workplace Culture: Culture Diversity Training Enjoyable Part Of Job: The co workers I worked with on my midnight shift. Hardest Part of Job: Having to deal with an unprofessional management team.
There were some good officers I worked with.
Management, supervisors, and lazy co workers!
Company lacks loyalty to diligent workers Management Professional (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – March 5, 2017 I made less than the Team Leader I supervised for years at the City of Detroit, and when we transferred to Great Lakes Water Authority, I was told I would be made whole and it never happened.
