I worked at Public Works Commission of Fayetteville full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
There are great people here. All of the ones I met are just regular employees, not managers, directors, or executives. They should be recognized for their excellence in getting the job done under great pressure, and bureaucracy.Cons
- Company relies on tenure vs actual ability to do the job. Lots of younger talent that runs circles around the "old" guys with 15+ years on the job. The younger guys quickly become fed up with the old school bureaucracy that permeates this company.
- A typical approval process involves 5 people from your manager to the CEO for anything over a few hundred dollars. It is even worse now with the new Oracle system put in place by one of the worst companies that I have ever had the opportunity to work with, InfoSys.
- The CEO ,Stephen Blanchard, has been around for something like 35 years. He isn't leaving anytime soon unless forced out since he makes such a great salary (283K as of 9/13), and his yearly bonus exceeds 25,000 every November. He is clueless about what actually happens with the different departments. His directors/officers sugar coat, and hide the real issues. These directors make 90K to close to 200K depending on tenure. Even with those very generous salaries the company still has a hard time justifying pay raises.
- Speaking of pay.... When you work for a company for 15 years and slowly creep up the ladder to make $30/hour, and they hire a new guy making $35/hour that knows less than you, well, it stings to say the least.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Just like with our government; out with the old and in with the new. These people need to take lessons from SAS, NetApp, and the other great companies in NC. Your employees from the bottom up need to be taken care of, paid well, and given opportunities to advance to help bring fresh ideas and modern values to a company that could be a leading employer in Fayetteville, NC.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
