    Pros

    great benefits and there are some good people.

    Cons

    typical civil service, a lot of people sandbagging for retirement, no innovation, change resisted, people create fortresses they can hide in for 20 years. Promotions are based on negative politics. Talking out of school not tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people from the private sector, stop cronyistic and nepotistic practices, spend money on staff development. Allow dissent. Diversity is more than the protected classes, but also thought. Also, not every idea management has is a good one and go back two sentences. change the culture of civil service that destroys initiative, work ethic into one that is progressive, entrepreneurial, innovative and cutting edge. Allow risk taking.
