Folks that do great things but in need of better managment
Former Employee (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 14, 2016
Benefits: The benefits are fantastic and the work that the Center for Court Innovation does is great.
Typical Day at Work: A Typical day was predictable and lacked a challenging and fun work environment. The Center for Court Innovation really needs to focus on some of the internal problems within different departments. There seems to be a major imbalance of cultural issues between teams mainly aimed against minority employees. There is no room for advancement and their approach to adopting new and innovative technologies is sub par. The leadership has no real sense of some of the deeper issues affecting their fellow employees on a day to day basis. I found it to be somewhat of a hostile work environment if you are not working on the right team with positive and supportive team members.
Co-workers: There are some brilliant folks at the center for court innovation, sadly a lot of the star talent do not stay around very long.
Management: Management does a very poor job at addressing underlying issues between team members. A very hands-off approach, some of the managers are not qualified or lack the knowledge to effectively run a tightly knit ship.Not to mention a running list of inappropriate behavior on many occasions.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with many of the inflated egos at the Center for Court Innovation. If you are familiar with working at non-profit organizations you'll see there does seem to be a divide between grant holders and the employees written into certain grants. You end up having multiple bosses you have to answer to and controlmore... issues.
I loved that the Center for Court Innovation was doing great things to help people in need. But internally there are some very ugly truths about what happens at the center amongst the staff.
My Advice: Pay closer attention to your employees and what they might be going through. Help to address racial and hostile work environment issues. Embrace the every changing world of technology and don't settle for mediocre leadership in this area.less
