Pros

Good Atmosphere, good attitude. Great leadership. Good wages and benefits. Personal development is always welcomed, with opportunities for degree programs and workshops.

Very bureaucratic, fast-paced dynamic environment. No career competition in area. Reorganizing is constant, resulting in frequent changes in department, job titles, bosses, etc.

Advice to Management

Keep your empoloyee's workload in mind when assigning additional duties. Stop reorganizing every 6 months. Throw more department lunches, celebrations, etc.

    Consider sliding scale parking based on employees salary! The bus route isn't always feasible depending on your work schedule.
