    Downhill due to regressive management practices

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, but they are shrinking every year. Start with about 3 weeks vacation a year.

    ConsYou'll need that vacation to balance out the stress. All shifts are horribly timed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen line staff tell you what is not working, actually listen to them and make adjustments, instead of insisting the current approach will be the only acceptable approach.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    barely ok

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Leesburg, VA

    Prosregular hours and work week. good health care benefits and short commute if you live close. Can move up if you are patient and work hard. Good basic HR training for basic items such as Microsoft Office and leadership, management. Retirement benefits and sick leave good.

    ConsLack of raises, actual cuts in take home over the past few years and hard work not rewarded with money. This may not change for the next few years. Some departments are very political and this can detract from the mission of the department. Old form of government which can makes the govt function at less than optimum. Many legacy systems and processes, which can be difficult to figure out and navigate. Departments isolated from each other, so there may be a lack of resource sharing. Each dept run like a independent small business (can be good or bad). Lack of professional training and networking with other professionals in same position in the state-which can lead to lack of innovation and effectiveness.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
