    I worked at Council of State Governments full-time

    Pros

    Very smart and talented people who are passionate about making an impact in the world of criminal justice

    Cons

    This place is known for the bait-and-switch; you interview for one job, thinking that you will be able to use your knowledge and make an impact, only to find out that your job function is something completely different and more junior.

    Employees definitely put more in than they get back from the company. Awards and raises seem to be given based on how close you are

    There is no on-site HR representative, so any HR issues are handled through the cold and insensitive deputy director, or remotely through the HR dept in Kentucky. There is some seriously poor leadership in terms of knowing how to treat or speak to staff, but also in that there is a lack of staff development.

    Lastly, there is very poor time management and planning skills across the board, leading to a constant state of crisis mode and last minute mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the skills and experience of the people you hire and make sure they are being utilized to the fullest potential;don't just hire bodies to fill open roles, take the time to make sure it's a good fit all around.

    Create more room for growth within the organization; people don't want to stay stagnant for years at a time, give them some motivation and something to work towards.

    Address personnel issues at all levels, including directors/managers who are not displaying ideal leadership; don't just assume that everything lies at the feet of the direct report, sometimes the managers are out of line too.

    DEFINITELY need an onsite HR representative.
