    So much potential. Bad employee attitude and lack of management skill

    Pros

    The benefits
    Job security (at least it was)
    Chances to work with new technology
    Earned Days off (eight days extra)
    Staff association for protection

    Cons

    Management limits longer holidays b/c 'we need staff' then all of management goes on holidays!
    IT is overworked
    Unrealistic expectations (we work really hard on a project, and then anything in the future less than that is our own 'failure').
    Management spends time on non-mission critical tasks like "your computer cables look bad. Tidy them up". This is what we pay them for?
    Inconsistent management and director philosophy
    Too many committees.
    Management is disconnected from the challenges staff face
    Director/Superintendent is trying to run IT as if it were a giant school, not an IT organization.
    Supervisors are overpaid, underworked, and incompetent.
    Overspending is rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with your employees. Get to understand the world from their viewpoint - listen to their problems and look for solutions. Don't focus on how our viewpoints are different than yours and how we must be 'out of line' as a result. Seems to me if we're all in agreement as workers, then it's management who has lost perspective.
