Pros

Coworkers, pay and benefits, vacation and holidays

Cons

Drama, bullying, gossip, overt and covert nepotism, unfairness, pettiness, extremely stressful, low morale, incompetent management, lack of character and integrity across the board

Advice to Management

Appreciate your core group. Those are the workers that make your organization successful. They're loyal, devoted, and grind every day with little or no complaint, regardless of their own personal circumstances. They are an asset to your organization, no matter how hard your managers/supervisors/nepotist employees try and make them believe otherwise. I've seen a lot of great people leave because of that. It's a shame, really. This organization really has the potential to be listed as one of the greatest places in the country to work, but the rampant cruelty, unnecessarily competitive atmosphere, hyper-stressful and unsupportive environment makes the organization hostile.

    When all the employees are friends or family, you will fail.

    Pros

    Location, job security after the one year probation period.

    Cons

    Nepotism. Ghetto administration. How embarrassing. Coworkers are all out to get you, there is no team spirit whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone, including yourselves, and start over.

    It's a safe job, with some (not much) chance of advancement.

    Pros

    The benefits are good: 11 paid holidays each year, good medical benefits, etc.

    Cons

    There's not much room for advancement, and there's lots of disorganization.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider other opinions before making decisions, and reorganize the city.
