Suggestions for improvement

  • I would allow for more collaborative decisions-- made by those on the front lines, or at least considering their feedback. At the same time, reducing the amount of power upper administration has over everything collectively. I would also incorporate benefits like reduced meal plans at the cafeterias, free gym memberships at the recreation center, the ability to work remotely, and allowing pets at least a few days a week. Morale is especially low at this time, and rather than find easy ways to bring it up (by doing little things), management just seems to drive it further and further down.

What I like about the company

The other employees in my office are great to work with, and generally support one another as coworkers and as friends. We have the ability to flex our office hours to work around other scheduling conflicts in our personal lives, which helps achieve a nice work/life balance. Our benefits are decent, and the pay isn't terrible for a government job.

What I dislike about the company

Management make really poor decisions, especially in times of a state budget crisis. They spend in areas they shouldn't (on unnecessary things), while cutting jobs and benefits to the employees. The organization as a whole is very top-heavy, and they like to micromanage and provide input in areas they know nothing about. As long as people play the right political games, they can advance as far as they want; if you don't buy into that, you may as well start looking for a new job, because you'll be gone as soon as they can get rid of you.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would definitely offer a better medical insurance package.

What I like about the company

I am treated well and my contributions are appreciated and recognized.

What I dislike about the company

My people who begin their career in an administrative assistant role, it's very difficult to move up into a professional role, even with a completed degree.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would provide each employee a membership at our rec center at no charge to the employee. This would encourage our workforce to be more active.

What I like about the company

I have been here for 38 years, so it's clearly been a good place to work. I am respected and valued for my contributions within my group. I have opportunities for professional development.

What I dislike about the company

We are state funded for a big part of our budget. Recent budget problems have developed with our state funding. For the most part, my employer has been very transparent about what's happening. But they recently announced there would be a certain number of people losing jobs but they won't notify them for another couple weeks. I feel they already know which jobs are being cut, so they need to just tell people now and not have us all stressing out for two weeks over this.
