Company Culture

The only culture here at the National Center is one where the employees are worth nothing and management is the good old boys/girls club.

Support from management

Employees are never consulted, even at the department level. Management provides no support. There are no advancement opportunities and management would rather continue to add work to existing staff than to hire additional staff even when there is money.

Freedom to work independently

This is a place of micro-management. There are multiple meetings to determine who should be at meetings related to projects, that is not being sarcastic, it is the reality of this organization.

Career Development

There is no real opportunity for advancement at this organization. Once individuals get into a management role, they stay there or are allowed to stay there by management even when they aren't good managers.

Overall compensation for your work

The organization pays average worker below market value for positions. However, if you happen to get hired into an upper level management position you will be fine. Executives are paid very well and often rewarded with annual pay increases larger than the standard rating percent that staff would receive.

Office / Work Environment

The building is infested with roaches. The building has many areas that leak. The building is always dirty, carpets not vacuumed daily, conference tables not cleaned nightly and staff who hold meetings almost always don't pick up after themselves, so if you are going into a conference room for a meeting, you need to be prepared to have to clean tables of food, drinks, trash etc.

Work-Life Balance

Expect that the management will have work-life balance but as a staff member you will not. Staff are expected to put in the extra hours to ensure that goals are meet and projects finished. Management do not feel they need to do that to help, that is only the responsibility of the staff.

Job Security

This is an "at-will" organization, so they need no reason to terminate you. If they can find someone to do your job for less money, they will eliminate your position to get rid of you and post a new job posting with a different title and less pay, but same duties.

Inclusive / Diverse

JOKE! This organization has a department specific to this, that does good work. The executive management however treat this as an item that is a simple check box to say they did it. Executive management is not behind this program.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of all the current management and start over. It is also time to start over with the people making this decision. Time to add new blood to the entire oversight group and management.

Company Culture

There is no company culture here. The company does a very poor job fostering this. Everything is always about giving more to the company with nothing given back to the employees. Department management is very poor here and their attitude is what is driving the poor culture.

Support from management

Employees are never involved and decisions are being made by staff who have been with the organization for many years, but who haven't been out in the field in a very long time, so do not have an actual understanding of "the real" world and what staff need to accomplish their jobs.

Freedom to work independently

This company is the definision of "micro-manage".

Career Development

There is no real career development opportunities or advancement opportunities in this company.

Job Security

This company is an "at-will" company, so they can and have many times just terminated employees. You really never know from one day to the next if you are going to go in and be told you have no job.

Inclusive / Diverse

This company does as little as possible to foster this culture. Everything it does is to simply check a box and say they did something. That is as far as it goes.

Suggestions for improvement

  • It is time to get rid of some of the managers that have been there for a long time and no longer have valid real life field experience. Listen to the staff and actually make changes. If you are going to continue to only provide lip-service to staff, then stop asking their opinions.

What I like about the company

They are a company that provides above average health benefits to their staff.

What I dislike about the company

Everything else. This is an organization that doesn't care about their staff at the end of the day.
