    I have been working at Orlando Utilities Commission

    Pros

    Great benefits, sick, vacation, health (used to be an option for education benefits but that may go away due to recent budget deficit).

    Cons

    In the call center it's all about numbers, stats, not the human element. Mgmt will look for any reason to release an employee, and they have a lot of ammunition based on shear numbers. Recently they are talking about lay offs, major budget deficit, other cost cutting measures all the while asking employees to come across as happy on the phone and in person, morale is very poor right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of wasting money on parking lot revamps, carpet and surveys and outside call monitoring companies, ask employees what they want and maybe if employees were happier they'd be happier to the customers. DOn't say you want suggestions and then dismiss the suggestions given.
