I have been working at New Jersey Schools Development Authority full-time for 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 Senior Management – reward good employees - focus on accomplishing the mission to build schools, not build mountains of paperwork
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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