    Bad/Inconsistent Management, No clear career paths, No mentoring, No clear goals, Siloed/Territorial environment.

    Don't be afraid to get rid of people who are underperforming, especially in the middle management tier.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Reasonably good salary.

    Understaffed due to economy in Michigan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to take on departmental problems. Good people leave out of burnout. Bad people stay as they know no one will hold them accountable.
