    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Council of State Governments full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Health, vision, dental.

    Cons

    Management is non-responsive and governed by cliques No feedback on job performance. No guidance. Work- life balance is non-existent. Hard work is not rewarded and loyalty is a foreign concept at this company. No raises. No flexible schedule unless it benefits the company and no tele-commuting policy for most of the employees. Some employees are allowed to tele-commute full-time. Open office concept is extremely disruptive.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a better work-life balance. Try to eliminate cliques. Only certain employees are kept informed and if you aren't in the group no news for you. The CEO asserts that we are a family and yet treats most employees as afterthoughts.
