    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    More secure and stable than private sector. Unless you commit a criminal action, you won't have to worry about being fired. They don't have to promote you, but they won't fire you.

    Cons

    Lack of competition like private sector creates a work ethos of where major mistakes are tolerated. Inadequate training. Substandard in quality employees. Individual workload mindset; little tolerance for team collaberation.

    Advice to Management

    Change mindset from "do your work, do your own research, and stop asking others" into "let's all talk, let's all share, let's all work together."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Daily experience truly helping people in need.

    Cons

    Rampant nepotism in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Remember why the agency exists. Customer/public service needs to take precedence over statistics and meeting quantified goals at the expense of quality of product and service.
