    I have been working at Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment everyone is on first name basis! Work hours are good and excellent benefits. Annual and sick leave is more than generous.

    Cons

    I have been with the CSB for 4 years and I can't think of a con. As with any job or employer there are stressful and overwhelming times.. but you get the job done and get through it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Develop supervisor and manager training programs. Pay for performance would be good.

    I have been working at Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board full-time

    Pros

    Excellent vacation and sick leave accrual. No accrual maximum. Fairly laid back atmosphere. All holidays off with pay.

    Cons

    Poor management. Most are unqualified. Each manager does their own thing. Rules change when the managers mood changes and not all employees have to follow the rules. There is lots of unprofessional behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Put people in place that have experience and a vision. Executives must have set guidelines for management and monitor them to make sure that they are in compliance. Get rid or them or demote them if they are not. Same policy for all other staff.
