    I have been working at Virginia Housing Development Authority full-time (more than 8 years)


    Some needed changes through retirements and major role shifts; new blood in high-level management positions means new perspectives (reviews from a few years ago are largely invalidated). Excellent fringe benefits including gym, cafeteria, parking, etc. The mission is as strong as ever.


    Building renovation committee made some bad choices that most associates have to live with. Associate growth opportunities remain stunted. Company functions & staff are very siloed; people spend 20 years doing same job.

Although it appeared like a very efficient process, I learned later that it was just a very practiced one. The job requirements for the position I was eventually hired had not been approved by the department head, and changed half way through my job to something I wasn't interested in doing.

    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiation.
