    Sluggish Employees who feel entitled due to Race

    Director (Current Employee)
    Little Rock, AR

    ProsBenefits of Retirement and grievance process if your a slacker. Holiday pay and vacation pay are excellent. They even offer pay to be off for your child's education such as teachers meetings.

    ConsEmployees and Managers who show up for a paycheck only. Lack of motivation and education. Employees in lower level positions will proactively create delays just because they can and nothing is ever done to them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward good employees cut poor performers. Legislature stop adding rules because employees just find workarounds.

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

    A valuable learning experience to use as a stepping stone toward my dreams.

    Digital Media Specialist (Former Employee)
    Little Rock, AR

    Pros-Only super busy during the 3 months of session every other year
    -Deadlines were very laid back
    -Gained valuable contacts for the future

    Cons-Was overlooked for a promotion
    -Raises were small
    -Job security can't be determined because of the political rules

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly, I can't really give any advice. I believe that they're doing a great job.
    If I had to give advise, I would just say utilize all of your employees. Get them used to doing the similar tasks every day. Other than that, they're already doing that, I'd just say keep moving forward.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
