Great potential - Good employees - Toxic Leadership
Manager (Former Employee), City HallDecember 14, 2011
Pros: work purpose, dedicated staff, work/life balance.
Cons: management by fear, no accountability, bullies flourish
The work is rewarding; the staff would like to make a difference. In all departments, folks who should never lead people continue to create a toxic work environment. Two women run the show and they hire their friends. Results do not matter; who is your friend does.
