    Pros

    IHDA offers a tremendous benefit package coupled with relatively lax work environment in which colleagues genuinely seeks to serve and support the Authority's mission. IHDA is also tremendous at investing in its workers.

    Cons

    1. The organization is extremely hierarchical, which constrains talent, and turf fighting is evident throughout the organization.

    2. The internal processes employed by the Authority are, in many cases, out-dated and laborious - efficiency is not IHDA's core competency.

    3. Consistent and expected management changes are expected.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in outside counsel to completely evaluate and re-imagine internal processes / organization structuring.
