    Negative Outlook


    The organization offers very few advantages. However, if you are willing to put in 30 years of your life, you will receive a pension and healthcare benefits.


    I would not recommend working for this organization unless you are a political appointee or are extremely desperate. There is no opportunity for advancement and pay raises are only given out once every 6 years. They do provide a pension but as you get closer to retirement age they try to force you out so that the pension benefit will not be as great. Moreover, employees are treated like slaves on a plantation. On the other hand, political appointees, who are buddies with the governor, get paid big salaries to do nothing all day. A year ago they hired a new CFO who had no background in finance and got paid $173,000 to spend her day networking for her next job which she finally found.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management is primarily composed of political appointees who are just there to collect a pay check and will not be there for very long. They need to be replaced by professional managers who have the expertise to perform the necessary functions of the job and will be in it for the long term. In addition, the organization needs to provide incentives for employees to do a good job and encourage promotion from within. Furthermore, emphasis should be placed on hiring bright talented employees instead of employees that can be controlled by management. Managers are currently treated like tenured professors. They need to be evaluated on an annual basis and poor performers need to be dismissed. I would also recommend that staff members evaluate their managers as part of the review process.
