Worked here over 10 years and it only gets worse

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

ProsWorking for a cause that serves the people; good vacation/sick time after you've been here over 10 years

ConsManagement is incompetent. They are completely politically driven and this causes a lot of work to be on hold or never get done. Legislative mandates are passes with no funding to implement. Workers are getting more and more work with no chance of promotion. They reward lazy workers and there's no room for advancement for the hard workers. Managers only care about those at a level of management on up. No concern for the general worker. People that have been here for years are staying as they believe in the work we do. People that have not been here for years are leaving left and right as they see the work they do is highly politically frustrating and no recognized nor appreciated.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hirinig senior management. This is the most top heavy I've ever seen the Department which has led to a less productive environment with all the politics. Look at staff advancement opportunties and start competing with the private market. Consider giving raises to hard working employees rather than going thru the reallocation process as the reallocation process does not work and more frequently denied to the general worker by HR than approved.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
