    Full of politcs and bullying- you never know how you are going to be treated from one day to the next.

    Human Resources (Current Employee) Boise, ID

    ProsCompensation is above average
    Pension plan
    Subsidized downtown parking

    ConsBullying is allowed
    Power is obtained by owning and not sharing information
    Training opportunities are only allowed for department pets
    Time off for care of family is "allowed" but then held against you as not being committed to company
    Managers do not know how to lead
    Inconsistent feedback
    You are not given tools to do your job successfully
    Managers rely on "spies" (this told to me directly from my supervisor) to get feedback on your daily activities and perfomance
    Leaders have inappropriate relationships with subordinates (taking vacations together,etc)
    Completing projects on time is more important than completing projects successfully

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the obvious...high turnover in a department (8 out of 13 in 3 years) means that something is wrong with the leadership. Have realistic expectations of your employees and put your money where your mouth is when you say "Family is First".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
