Great enterprise mission, but no local executive leadership to accomplish vision in Louisiana.

Pros

High level of autonomy in management positions. Outstanding benefits package. Potential for career advancement due to nationwide growth.

Cons

All managers are allowed to operate autonomously, which would be fantastic if they all performed adequately. Local executive management fosters an environment of no individual / departmental accountability and flat out refuses to clarify roles and responsibilities, thus creating ample opportunity for slackers to shirk their duties. Low employee morale due to lack of executive leadership.

Advice to Management

Take a hard look at local executives to evaluate if you have the right people in place to lead the company in the right direction. Seek feedback from local leadership AND front-line associates on the office climate for a real eye opener. Stop the practice of transplanting low performers from other offices for management positions when there are fully qualified and capable employees who have been committed to working here from the beginning. Be proactive in creating accountability and improving morale before there is a mass exodus.

    Pros

    Some associates are truly committed to caring about members

    Leadership is lacking. Talks about caring but does not live it.

    Advice to Management
