    Pros

    Work-life balance is wonderful. There was no Friday work from Memorial to Labor Day.

    Cons

    There was little variety in the work. In addition, the benefits and compensation were just average.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job. This is a great place to work. I hated to leave, but wanted to do something different.

    Pros

    Knowledgable in their fields. Many of years of expertise in their staff.

    Cons

    Understaffed and has been cutting back on staff the last few years and spreading the work out running people thin,

    Advice to Management

    Realize people aren't machines and there is a limit to how many staff you can let go and choose not to replace.

    Pros

    Great place to work where you can stay for as long or as little as you want. Many people have worked here for more than 10 years and enjoy it. Very friendly co-workers and executive staff.

    Cons

    In my department there is a lot of micro-managing from my supervisor. Feeling like I can't have a good work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    While some departments are great at giving employees a great work-life balance others are not. Also it would be great to institute a yearly evaluation of employee supervisors from their stand point so that you can improve those who manage your staff.
