I worked at Charter Oak State College full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

State job, well-intentioned staff and good students.

Cons

High stress created by poor management. There is very low employee morale which results in low productivity and too much time spent on internal conflicts and unclear expectations. Highly talented staff are poorly managed. Very little opportunity for growth within the organization. Problems are not addressed proactively but allowed to grow. This is an extremely unpleasant work place with very little emphasis on quality or creativity. Staff are increasingly being expected to do more with less and support staff are treated with extreme lack of respect and consideration. Many complaints against supervisors have been filed in recent years.

Advice to Management

Put more money in people and creating an effective and inspired workforce and less money on toys.

    I have been working at Charter Oak State College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and benefits. Some of the work is very good with great potential

    Cons

    No focus on employee needs, development or satisfaction. No thought on how employees will be able to complete work in a quality manner. Management focused on own needs rather than on organizational needs. Organization does not work well together due to lack of leadership. It is quite obvious the leaders in the organization have not been trained to do their job well and make it up as they go. Depressing environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Sincerely recognize good performance in your staff. Consider their suggestions and encourage staff to work together and be supportive of each other. Demonstrate that behavior yourself.
