    I worked at City of Casselbery full-time

    Pros

    - Due to the small size of the organization, there is a chance for hard working employees to gain skills, experience and recognized. - Relax atmosphere, very business casual with employees able to chit chat around management and even with management.

    Cons

    - With a small organization comes long term employees who become territorial and groups form that can cause an outsider to view it as cliques and not a unified team. - With a pay raise freeze and a massive layoff four years ago, long term employees are hesitate to those who join the team. - Dedicated employees who accept the low salary are not shown recognition, opportunities of promotion or incentives from management. There becomes low motivation and the result is an organization that is getting by when it needs to adapt to the changing economy/environment/market. - Due to the lengthy process of hiring a position, many employees are handling tasks that is not part of their description; causing inefficient and low quality output. The change needs to be a more efficient hiring process and understanding that greater responsibility will require more time. Old deadlines cannot be met when new tasks are added every other day. - Leadership is vital to a company. Leadership skills is vital for anyone with an upper management position. There is very little time dedicated to evaluating leadership skills and training. - New ideas, processes, projects etc. are evaluated with hesitation due to a collective mindset of a longstanding model of operating that will only hold the organization back when it is vital to push forward to met the needs of both the employees and the citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate leadership skills and provide training where it is needed. Determine and prioritize what is the most efficient method of handling various aspect of operating the organization. Identify employees with high skill levels, motivation, hardworking, great potential to excel at an efficient rate and consider their contribution to the organization. Consider the outcome if those contributions are removed and given to another employer.
