Flexible schedules- good for working moms Increasing vacation time with experience Retirement plan matching Stable

Cons

Low salary Difficult to advance Unambitious coworkers Many positions are very stressful

Advice to Management

In order to keep exceptional employees, there should be opportunities for advancement that are not simply based on the number of years at the job. There should also be more flexibility in movement to areas that are better suited to the employee. Preventing an employee from getting another position just because it is at the same grade level is discouraging and hinders employee growth.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are decent, and the mission, at least writ large, is obvious and appealing. Bonuses, while small, can still relatively easily be obtained.

    Cons

    The ennui is contagious and the workplace is not one for the over-achiever. In addition, transitioning to higher positions of managerial importance is exceedingly difficult, as people refuse to retire before they are forced out. Managers frequently do not understand their roles and feel threatened by hard workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire carefully and fire more readily. Mentor people more!


  2. I love the hours, cause they allow me the freedom to travel
