"Good and bad"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID

Pros

Good benefits and laudable effort to include employees in decisions about compensation. Some departments are just better to work for than others.

Cons

Poor supervision / evaluations; low wages; disjointed direction from the top; little emphasis beyond lip service to provide consistency throughout the organization; budget approach is in a constant state of change, which makes it difficult to provide ongoing support for some programs.

Advice to Management

Way too many irons in the fire. Decide what's important and focus on those things. Need to get expert help at standardizing business practices.
