    Pros

    Fun people. Good place for people interested in public health.

    Cons

    Agency heads hardly ever give raises, and when they do, it's to people they like. Very incestuous. Lots of work and no reward financially. Lots of lazy people who get paid well but who aren't qualified to do the job and do little to no work. Agency is too top heavy.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Human resources department staff are professional and courteous
    Metro accessible location is the best benefit - subway is right across the street

    Cons

    Some of the senior administration don't have college degrees
    Staff problems arn't addressed without there being drama or incident
    Good staff members are not appreciated as much as the less productive staff members

    Advice to Management

    Yearly or bi-annual staff performance review is highly needed. Some staff have been there so long they have lost all empathy toward the addicts
