Caseworker (Former Employee) says"Poorly ran location, with internal favoritism, exhausted workers, ignorant supervisors with a lack of knowledge, skills to make culturally sensitive decisions. Langfeld and others lack direction, knowledge, and maturity to be in their positions. Continue to hide behind a cloak of HIPAA. Cons: Schedule, support, leadership, work life balance, compensation, benefits, favoritism"
Medical Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) says"Denver Health is corrupt and inefficient. Political hiring and promotions. Patient care not a priority. I would not recommend anyone seek employment with this organization. Cons: System is corrupt"
SECURITY CIRCULATION CLERK (Current Employee) says"Low pay, management always against you no support. Lots of back stabbing coworkers. The most unappreciated bosses , never promoted, way under paid."
Social Case Worker (Former Employee) says"Caseworkers are constantly cycling through because they can’t keep anyone- not because the job is tough, but because management, training, supervisors and culture is unbearable, inconsistent and downright awful. Each supervisor works different and plays favoritism. There wasn’t one week that someone didn’t quit on the spot or turned in notice. There’s this idea that the “tough” caseworkers stick it out but people with compassion, ethics, and sanity leave pretty quick."
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) says"Brown nose place, good old boys club. Butt kissing, nepotism, favoritism, it goes all the way to the top. Micro management of people. A rat race of people. Cons: Unethical"

If you’re not one of the big shots making over 100 K , you’re going to be living paycheck to paycheck. Open ur eyes there is no benefit in working agov job.The reality of a gov job is not attractive atall. Private sector jobs are the way to go, the gov can not offer the compensation needed to survive in this economy, especially if you’re single person. Cons: Upper management is very very pathetic, Women preaching about women in power all the while cuttingfellow female coworkers at the knees."
Opp supervisor (Former Employee) says"Definite class distinction in some units because of wealthy directors coming from snazzy Law Firms that just don’t get it, and never will. This is a government gig, get it through your head, rich entitled people do not belong in government jobs, all they do is destroyed units. Cons: Some directors stuck in law firm world and just don’t get it and never will"
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) says"Terrible place to work. Employer wants to have a good image but they treat people like they have no value. HR is there to protect management only. I think there are too many layers of management, too."
Network Security Engineer (Former Employee) says"New CIO is absent and non existent, New Director is fake, Network and Data/Voice Manager is a warm body, lackluster pay. If you are a hard worker and are worth anything you will be worked to the bone until you quit. Architecture team is full of Egomaniacs. 5 Firewall Admins have quit within the last 4 years. Do NOT Work Here. This is a hostile chaotic environment as of May 2015 Cons: Clueless Leadership and Employees - Negligence is rampant"
Officer, Human Resources (Former Employee) says"Many good people, however, the head of HR was not able to effectively lead an Talent Management focused Diversity & Inclusion function."
Office (Former Employee) says"Bad superiors, leads and workers who don’t do anything unless you like to do that. And don’t speak up or you’ll get fired but don’t worry you’ll quit before then. They do only for their family and friends"
Eligibility Worker (Former Employee) says"If you are ready to be judged and for people to be all up in your business and work with hypocrites this is the place to be! They put on a good show pretending it’s oh so great! But treat you like scum if you don’t cave in to their cult. Very toxic. Work with the public and then talk bad about them behind their back! Cons: Drama, discrimination, no progress, favoritism"
Anonymous (Former Employee) says"Do not work here. You will regret it. The management is what you would expect at a government entity - poor! But the culture is even worse. Bad employees are not dealt with, supervisors do what is necessary to cover their own behinds, harassment and bullying is accepted and you will work like a dog for no appreciation. In one department alone, 12 people have left, out of 16, in the last 8 months. That should tell you all you need to know! Cons: All mentioned above"
Eligibility Technician I & II (Current Employee) says"Awful place to work. Awful pay with terrible management. Would not recommend to my worst enemy to work here. There is no opportunity for advancement and most people are lazy but no one ever gets fired so i guess that's a plus for someone who doesn't care about there job."
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) says"They're bunch of bullies that work there expecially with management. Only two good ones. Most co-workers address friendly and helpful bit that's about it. Cons: Management bullies, pay"
Equipment operator (Former Employee) says"I was an EO at the airport with 13 years driving experience, 2 years equipment, and was the least paid. A guy with zero experience got top scale as an EO. The management is terrible at communicating and they treat you like you're stupid for not knowing things"
Police Dispatcher (Current Employee) says"The City of Denver -specifically the Denver Police Department- exemplifies the definition of favoritism. It's not what you know in this organization, it's who you know, or who you are sleeping with, that will get you ahead (or hinder you) in your career. The Police Department and Dispatch somehow end up with the worst people obtaining leadership positions, with the best being tamped down for fear they will make the incompetent appear even more incompetent. Cons: Poor leadership, improper overtime payouts, harassment & discrimination, favoritism, poor work/life balance"
Environmental Public Health Investigator (Former Employee) says"This review is about DDPHE, specifically Public Health Inspections, rather than the City and County of Denver as a whole. PHI is a colossal disaster. Poor management, favoritism, nepotism - you name it and it happens in PHI. The turnover rate is astronomical both in residential and food safety. Employees are micromanaged over everything, including tracking how every day is spent down to the minute. The culture is toxic and negative. The workload is ridiculous even for the hardest worker. Little to no advancement opportunities available, especially if you aren’t one of management’s selected favorites. To be frank, I’ve been working for a long time. I’ve had some not so great jobs that I take in stride, but I’ve never seen anything close to what goes on in PHI. It’s genuinely abysmal. Management pretends to act so bewildered when people constantly quit, as if they can’t even wrap their heads around why people leave. They ask employees to express their concerns, yet time after time nothing changes. Then they turn around and target the employees who were brave enough to even speak up. It’s clear that they don’t really care and have no desire to take the real actions required to make PHI a worthwhile place to build a career. It’s a shame because they do important work that is of great value to the public. The City itself might be a great place to work, but I’d caution against joining PHI unless it’s to get some experience and then get out quick. Leaving this job was the best thing I ever did for myself. Cons: Terrible management, micromanaging, excessive workload, toxic culture"
Materials Manager (Current Employee) says"The City and County of Denver is by far the worse job I have ever had. Cronyism is rampant, managers protect their turf at the determent to their employees and these are the good points. Cons: Ruthless with the approach to their employees."
