    Pros

    Good benefits, good schedule, good pay and nice co-workers. The location of the building is convenient for me in my travel to work.

    Cons

    Management is unfair. There is no communication. Decisions are made for employees without their knowledge. There are no opportunities for growth. The people placed in management are incompetant and inexperienced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate current management, talk to employees about their work and the expectations of the department. Encourage employees to be their best. Provide opportunities for promotion.

    Pros

    benefits, If in the union than very hard to get fired. Set work schedule, help people, rewarding, room for growth.ABility to learn new skills and interact with other city epartments and community groups. Politial connections.

    Cons

    too many constant changes, lack of organization. Poor mid managment. Powerful HR department. Large case loads for case-managers who do too much trivial work and cannot focus on real client problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay connected with other similar agencies nationwie to learn nw methods of service delivery and management and organization. Reduce power of HR department. Provide continueing education and opportunities for mid management to get out of the officea and interact with other departments and professionals.
