Support from management

Zero leadership skills in WIC IT. They hired unqualified people to ruin the organization. It was all about friendships and power trips in this dept.

Teamwork

The teams and employees were great, but management greated animosity by allowing some people to attend training and some not.

Internal Communication

Management doesnt relay info to employees about key moves, realigning of dept, etc. One day it just happens

Office / Work Environment

Facility was ok.

Work-Life Balance

The work wasn't stresful, the environment was stressful

Workplace Safety

Safe area; no complaints

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire based on talent, not friendships and connections. Remove those who misuse federal funds.

What I like about the company

Lots of leave, working hours were good. I met some really great coworkers who care about the people we served.

What I dislike about the company

Management! WIC promoted incompetent people, created division amongst employees and treated employees poorly.
