Pros

State employee benefits. Modern flexible schedule benefits. Good base salary. Accessible location. Free parking. Spacious accommodations. Good equipment and resources. Good balance of work to socialization. Eclectic staff. Important work is performed for an important organization. Most of the support staff are capable and responsive. Half of the leadership is excellent and competent.

Cons

Disorganized cluster of programs who act like fiefdoms. Poor leadership. Poor Leadership to Employee communications. Culture changes frequently and without explanation. Blatant favoritism, intimidation, bullying. Popular opinion of under appreciation, poor staff utilization, and amateur management. Program staffers have become secondary to overpaid IT contractors who no one seems to know what they do or why they are present. Poor assistance from parent location.

Advice to Management

Improve top down communications. Implement quarterly communications to the staff. Create an employee handbook. Perfect your on-boarding procedures. Review employee performance more often than at merit time. Shake up the stagnation. Review and audit the relevance of fringe positions and IT contractors. Encourage cross unit learning. Find ways to recognize and reward above-and-beyond performance.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fun atmosphere, employee benefits and programs are wonderful

    Cons

    Middle management is terrible, and discrimination is evident. Mgrs who treat others in an unacceptable fashion are Not disciplined (HR/Diversity dept is not doing their job)! Dont work there unless you like to be verbally abused, bullied, discriminated against and then made to feel it was your fault!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, and terminate management who is causing the problems. You are losing good people (they are quitting)! for no good reason
