- General Services Administration GSA10.May 2018
There is a lot of favoritism in this office.
Support from management
The managers will support you if they like you. Otherwise the support is lacking.
Everyone was only looking out for themselves. super
Freedom to work independently
You have the freedom to work freely, however they do micro-manage at times.
Lack of communication caused a lot of issues.
training budget is lacking. There is little to no on-the-job training. You are expected to get training from other co-workers.
Office / Work Environment
It's an open-concept space with little to no privacy.
GSA does have a wonderful telework program that helps with the work-life balance. Although this HR office doesn't use it to it's fullest.
The challenging part of the work here is that there can be times when there is a LOT of work to be done. Supervisors offer no support with regard to workload assistance.
Suggestions for improvement
- This office needs several leadership changes. If that doesn't happen, there will be no improvement. Management doesn't take criticism or feedback well. There is always a fear of retaliation.
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
There was a lot of favoritism. No communication. There is an "us versus them" mentality between the employees and the supervisors. Little to no training for new employees.
Reprimands for mistakes were harsh and often publicized within the office.
