IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Sarasota, FLMay 18, 2017
Most of the managers don't want to "get into the weeds". The expression "ask for forgiveness later instead of permission now" is often used. There is no trust among the employees.

Current Planning Manager, Growth Management (Former Employee) –  Sarasota, FLJune 5, 2016
At the time I was there too much time and effort was expended on complicated management processes and their interrelationship to practical hands-on current planning or even advanced planning efforts. That being said, the current planning effort was reasonably well organized in its interaction with other departments and those served. The community cared about planning and the impacts in had on their lives. Community outreach was very important. The staff were great to work with overall. The community to be served cared which helped considerably to the work effort.
