Company Culture

My teammates are grea and committed

Teamwork

Lots of political shenanigans

Freedom to work independently

Chain of command is a challenge

Internal Communication

Not enough real examples shared

Gender Equality

Still has a strong good ol' boy network mentality

Attitude towards older colleagues

Lots of opportunities to try new things and reinvent yourself

Career Development

Very dependent on who you know, demonstrates favoritism

Office / Work Environment

Facilities are old

Environmental Friendliness

Still lots that could be done

Work-Life Balance

Much better than private industry

Handicapped Accessibility

Very good at accommodating people with disabilities

Challenging Work

Complicated regulations and processes are challenging, lack of true leadership is a problem

Inclusive / Diverse

They talk the talk, but there are still areas where diversity is lacking

Suggestions for improvement

  • Eliminate layers of management and permit employees to fail with fear of reprisal in order to allow for innovation. Talk about those failures and how they led to future successes.

What I like about the company

Challenging work and an important mission.

What I dislike about the company

The political culture that is hard to change. There is a disconnect between senior leadership and the rest of the workforce. Need to become more agile and flexible, with clear improvements in accountability needed.
