    Management need to focus on making the employees happy instead of lining their pockets with exaggerated salaries that compete with Fortune 500 companies.

    I have been working at State Accounting Office of Georgia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Flexible schedules, management doesn't micro-manage. Job functions include working on various projects that affect agencies state-wide.

    Cons

    Inconsistent with hiring practices. Executive management hires all her friends from SunTrust and pays them significantly higher salaries ($20,000+) than the current employees, to do the same work. HR doesn't try to level the playing field, they support it. New employees are brought in and treated as VIPs but don't have to get in the trenches and do the real work that keeps the agency running. They are hired into the same position but then treated as "advanced" level users who don't have to perform the true functions of the position. A whistle-blower waiting to happen!

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring all of your friends, and hanging out like "girlfriends" during work hours. It sends the wrong message to the rest of the staff and shows favortism.

    I worked at State Accounting Office of Georgia full-time

    Pros

    This company is really adequate for people that want to take it easy or the people next to retirement that want to invest in other things

    Cons

    Company where hard working and dedication are not a quality. The payroll is not great either. The ambiance could be better

    I have been working at State Accounting Office of Georgia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to work for this company. They suck and don't care about their employees or treating people fair. The salary is horrible unless you are on the Executive Team and the moral is very low.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. It's so much wrong with this agency. Too much politics and good old boy system. Management is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Need work to incorporate work life balance. Opportunity for growth is limited. Listen to your employees. Do put out an employee survey asking how to improve management and then ignore the concerns.
