    Pros

    Cciio Directors are down to earth, growth is acknowledged and highly encouraged from day one. Great benefit package and schedule flexibility. Lot of optional employee trainings available that cover topics like leadership, conflict management, professional writing, public speaking, conflict management etc. these trainings help you be the best that you can be and encourage professional and even personal growth. Senior leadership is also very kind, down to earth and take the time to try to get to know staff via optional lunch staff meetings ect and open door policy approach. Other options for growth include detailing and cms rotation program which allows employees to work with another cms group for a few months and then return back to their original group. This will broaden your skill set and encourage growth, and allow you to really get a feel for your options if you want to transition to another cms department in the future. There's nothing like working with a group that respects each other and want to see be amazing. Directors seems seems to have great chemistry with each and get along very well. Cciio is also awesome place for entry level professionals to learn more about government. The staff is high patient and open to teaching newbies about how being a government employee/ government protocols work. Beyond that if If you truly believe in the mission this is a wonderful place for you.

    40 hour work week

    Cons

    Incompetent management all the way up to the top; management unable to breach a surface understanding of issues; many people are leaving and the stragglers left there are the ones that can't get other jobs; some people are paid way too much for what they do

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to take risks to stand up for what you know is right; stop taking advantage of people for your personal gain and career advancement.
