    Pros

    - There are a number of employees who are brilliant, extremely talented and kind people.
    - Quality reputation from the outside looking in.
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Everything you know about bad management is here.
    - Funds are constantly inappropriately allocated. Paying high fees to outside contractors where the same (most likely - much better) job can be done in-house.
    - Not rewarded or recognized for achievement unless you among the select few who ALWAYS get the pat on the back and some $$ added to their paycheck.
    - Huge employee turnaround.
    - Inability to think about the future of the organization strategically.
    - No opportunity to grow, advance within the department.
    - Low salaries for most employees (but high salaries for upper management).
    - Relatives, friends and friends of friends of senior leadership get hired for high positions (often incompetent and not qualified for the job), where qualified existing staff isn't even remotely considered for advancement.
    - Although there is a huge budget crisis, money is always found when a perfectly fine senior level manager's office needs to be "renovated" and new designer furniture bought.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself, "What have I done that is positive within the last year"?
    Ask yourself, "How many extremely qualified individuals have come through these doors and quit? Why did they resign?
    Check the pulse of your team once in a while and see how they are doing.
    Listen to criticism because your job is not to react but solve issues or make things within the unit work better and employees happier. Happy employees=productivity and progress. Haven't you figured it out yet?!
