    I have been working at New Jersey Schools Development Authority full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    35 hour work week - nothing demanding - lots of time off

    Cons

    Quagmire and bureaucratic - no raises in six years for entire agency - poor morale - lack of direction and mission

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward good employees - focus on accomplishing the mission to build schools, not build mountains of paperwork

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at New Jersey Schools Development Authority

    Pros

    The NJSDA is a state authority that provides employees with good benefits and a pleasant working environment. Generally speaking it is a good place for administrative folks who want to stay within the state pension/benefits system.

    Cons

    Management has no experience running what is essentailly a construction firm. Management relies on 'cronyism' in promoting inexperienced folks who only know how to promote themselves to their superiors. Knowledge and experience mean very little. Pay is low compared to commensurate work in the private sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust those who work for you that have more knowledge and experience in the design and construction of schools field.
