Suggestions for improvement

  • I would allow a more flexible work environment and provide better training to first line supervisors on staff motivation.

What I like about the company

I was there for about five years and I met some really great people that I still have friendships with today. The work was not entirely fulfilling, but some of the friendships and relationships made it worth while.

What I dislike about the company

There are many silos to working with other offices and branches. There are many micro managers and employees who take advantage of being a state employee
