Company Culture

The company tries to make new employees feel welcome.

Support from management

As a new employee, I was put in a facility where I was the only Veteran Counselor present. I didn't receive adequate training from my management in order to fulfill my duties. I was isolated from everyone else. Oftentimes, I felt myself "scrambling" on important details pertains to my job.

Teamwork

I was in an area away from the seasoned workers; therefore, I had issues trying to reach them for assistance. I was brand new. It was a "hit and miss."

Freedom to work independently

I was in a facility where I had no choice but to work independently. I was the only Veteran Counselor assigned there.

Internal Communication

There was constant communication from the higher echelon.

Gender Equality

There were no issues regarding gender equality. Everyone was treated equally regardless of gender.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They were shown with the utmost respect. I enjoyed being around them. They all seemed to have a great work ethic.

Career Development

You had to earn it. It could take a long time before you were promoted.

Overall compensation for your work

The salary was low. There was a lot of work that had to be done, but I don't think that the salary was commensurate with all of the responsibilities involved.

Office / Work Environment

It was challenging at times. There were days when there were a lot of screaming children in the office. It was hard to concentrate at times.

Environmental Friendliness

Always clean.

Work-Life Balance

I worked only on weekdays.

Company Image

It has a good reputation throughout the state for helping Veterans.

Job Security

You had to meet quotas that, sometimes, you had no control over. If they weren't met, your probationary period could be extended or you would be terminated.

Handicapped Accessibility

It was available.

Workplace Safety

Had measures in place to ensure safety. (Security was present).

Challenging Work

Yes. If the Veterans that you were trying to assist couldn't be reached, then it could appear that you weren't reaching out to them.

Inclusive / Diverse

We had a diverse group of people there. I enjoyed it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to emphasize the importance of training.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed helping Veterans.

What I dislike about the company

Inadequate training.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Not a progressive environment. Women are not in any top roles or on the state appointed commission. Senior management is not interested in process improvement or training for the rank and file employee.

What I like about the company

This is a state job, so benefits are good.

What I dislike about the company

Non-White, Non-male, Non-colonels need NOT apply
