    worked at lasalle station for a year and half, work environment is very poor and stressful therefore no pros at all

    High turn over in mangment a lot of new hire with no background in anything also bad mangment with few knowledgeable personnel. The station is very week when it comes to higher standards a lot of turn over at manager level with young personnel who barely know anything about the station and how to deal with employees.Also high stress level due to lack of knowledge at the employee level with uneducated old school personnel who get overwhelmed for any reason.

    Over haul and bring knowledge to the departments,
    Not who knows how to talk

    Pros

    Great health benefits, salary was competitive - but I realize that was to combat the high turnover

    Cons

    Organization Level Reviews, where managers debate subordinates’ rankings, assigning and reassigning names to boxes in a matrix projected on the wall forcing managers to get rid of valuable talent just to meet ridiculous and unsubstantiated quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the performance rankings. Trying to justify how facility performance is all behavior based is nonsensical. Real change has to start at leadership level and they have to commit in believing what they espousing.
