    Pros

    Great first line management. Good training if there is time do to under staffing we often miss training opportunities . Good benefits. Opportunities are there but you must be aggressive. Fortunately I am happy with where i currently am.

    Cons

    Not enough backup in positions. Budget problems. Lack of information that could effect you job or employment. Dress code for employees that work as labor should allow for jeans and tee shirt. We are required to set up and move computers. We have to work in Communication closet and run network cables yet have to wear slacks and collard shirts while performing thies duties

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep workers informed of passable decisions that might effect the job. Allow employees in on the decision making process.

    Could be a nice place to work, but unions and management create a distrust amoung themselfs.

    Pros

    Job Security, benefits and Pension

    Cons

    Hard to advance. Wages vary among departments for the same Job. larger departments paymore and then smaller departments. Smaller departments payless, for doing the same job as in a larger department and with less support and training. Larger means more important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the exam process or centralize it with resources, you already have the interview and probationary period.
