Unfair employee practices

2.28

Company Culture

The culture used to be one of a family atmosphere where people had your back and teams worked together and it was safe to express disagreement without concern that your job was on the line. With the advent of a new administration, it became more cold and corporate. 40 staff were laid off, while remaining staff doubled their workload for extended periods of time. Due to these and other arbitrary changes, more employees left in droves.

Support from management

The administration does not know how each department functions and makes decisions based on very little real knowledge. Opinions that differ from the executive administration are met with scorn and reprisal.

Freedom to work independently

Autonomy is good within this agency. Time off is generous.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long standing employees are not respected and valued and years of service is no longer reflected in the pay structure.

Career Development

There is little room for career advancement. Reorganization of departments resulted in many fine employees leaving.

Overall compensation for your work

Salary structure is rigid and follows a new paradigm more like state civil service pay grades but withno regard for past experience even within the organization.

Environmental Friendliness

The agency tries to stay current on human service issues and improve services for consumers.

Job Security

Very poor, people fear losing their jobs if the don't toe the company line.

Workplace Safety

safety Training opportunities are few and far between. There are written protocols and policies. While they are on the website and available for staff to read, there is little opportunity to practice safety drills.
