More support of people managers would be helpful and increase alignment with various critical program deadlines and organizational demands.

Company Culture

Its a government funded program, AARP is the mechanism to reach people.

Support from management

Its all about the project director ONLY.

Teamwork

If you are helping them do their work its teamwork. They like titles but are unsure what they are responsible for.

Freedom to work independently

NO.

Internal Communication

I know something you don't know type of attitude. I always felt I was given half of the instructions by coworkers. Yes results/success was shared.

Career Development

I found my job on my own. The program is designed to help you find "real" employment.

Overall compensation for your work

Minimum wage.

Office / Work Environment

The coworkers that have been there the longest have a territorial attitude. The project director thinks she is running it but the "lead file clerk" has everyone on her strings.

Environmental Friendliness

NO.

Work-Life Balance

NO. you can only work scheduled hours.

Challenging Work

YES.

Inclusive / Diverse

No.

What I like about the company

Working there made me realize my worth and tolerance level for BS.

What I dislike about the company

The utter ridiculousness of people.
