    Pros

    honestly nothing to even consider working here again

    Cons

    Complete and utter dysfunction fueled by lead Managers with zero people skills and/or business knowledge. Atmosphere is depressing where it should be a fun place. Laid off 100% of staff when relocated from Fla. To Washington. People are disposable if they are not top management.

    I worked at CLIA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, some great co-workers. The Fort Lauderdale office is closed, and now CLIA is based out of Washington, DC.

    Cons

    One of the most dysfunctional places I've worked. Favoritism was rampant, each manager had their own set of rules so there was no consistency regarding OT pay or comp time. Very small organization with little to no room for professional growth.

    Pros

    very good benefits package, convenient location, free parking

    Cons

    no opportunities for advancement, lots of favoritism, the only feedback you'll receive about your job is negative feedback, no formal job reviews, weak management, lack of communication between employees and management

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing favorites. The organization is too small and everyone talks. You make think no realizes certain people get special treatment, but everyone knows who the favorites are. Also, hold managers accountable for their actions - get rid of the bullies.
