Advice to ManagementAdvice

I left because DOI offered an early-out that targeted my position. I would ask for a transfers but was continuously denied. In my former organization, there was no opportunity for training and/or career growth. It was also disappointing that only select people were allowed to work from home. Employee surveys are great, and management says they take these into account and are listening, but they aren't and end up doing what they want to do anyway. There is also a great deal of favortism throughout the organization. Money that could be used for employee training is wasted on unnecessary things such as consultants who recommend changing the name of the organization.
