    Pros

    Doing meaningful work .

    Cons

    Not able to spend time with clients due to mandatory paperwork; high caseload; high employee turnover rate leaving you with even more extra work to do. Sad for families that really need that one on one time with you because its simply not feasible.

    Pros

    -Good place to start -Benefits are better than average -Coworkers are ok

    Cons

    -Vice President/CIO do not know what theyre doing -They keep altering the policy to fit their needs, and not the needs of the company as a whole -No room for promotion or raises (except themselves apparently) -The pay does not justify the amount of work that is required. -If you do not agree with them, they will find a way to get you fired. Happened to two employees. -Vice President belittles her employees,... and manipulates her employees. -Have unrealistic expectations for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage your team, or at least learn how technology works. You have little to no experience with IT, yet you lead a team. For whoever hired the current CIP and VP, please consider looking into them. There is a lot of suspicious activity going on, and it rubs some employees the wrong way. Also treat your employees better. Without them, your ideas would be dead on arrival.
