An overall hostile environment, demoralizing work culture, and sadly incompetent leadership in many departments.

I worked at Virginia Housing Development Authority

Pros

Great health benefits, on-site parking structure, on-site cafe and gym.

Cons

Management in key departments is dismissive of the knowledge and talent of their employees. Favortism and a 'good ol' boys' culture, rather than skill or talents, dictate management staffing choices.

Correction to information posted for this company - Janet Butler, aka Janet Wiglesworth, is NOT the CEO, she is merely the Director of Information Technology Services. Susan Dewey is the Executive Director.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value the people working for you; you hired them, you must have had some degree of confidence in their skills.

    I worked at Virginia Housing Development Authority full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are wonderful. Upper management cares about the employees and will work with you whenever they can.

    Cons

    Some people can be gossipy and cut throat. It just depends on where you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a great job. Maybe listen more to lower level associates. They are the ones who really run the company and know how things work. They are in the best position to offer advice and make positive changes.
