    Pros

    great benefits, work conditions depend on which particular program/dept you are in - they vary greately across programs, good place to gain experience working with children

    Cons

    oblivious management, very little communication across the organization, people tend to get pigeonholed in their positions and programs, management does not support advancement with a few exceptions, hr does not have a presence and will only get involved to support senior managers

    Advice to Management

    employees like seeing the big picture and know what's happening outside their programs. open lines of communications are important. agency strategy and direction is perceived as opaque. management is perceived as secretive.

  2. Disappointing
