Clueless HR Department, Directors/Leaders Inexperienced
Public Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Chatham County, GA – June 15, 2017
After working with UGA Extension, and now simply a Georgia taxpayer, all I can say is the taxpayer is NOT getting it's money- and quality-worth with the University. There was NO accountability, it was all about office politics (and there was a lot of lying, showing up to work late, insubordination and insolence).
Regardless of having University-wide policies to uphold and follow, there was no consequence for blatantly breaking them, or having outside vendors break policies. Facility leadership and upper management (including those IN ATHENS) did nothing about it, denied it, etc. even with years of documented complaints and evidence.
Again, as a mere taxpayer now, I will request to my state legislators and the governor that line-item funding for Cooperative Extension be cut drastically. I'm also contacting my county commissioners to voice my disgust with the money-pit and incompetence this branch of the University has revealed itself to be.
Benefits (but since it's paid with my taxes, it's screwing me/us over!)
NO accountibility, life-long career employees, good ole'boy/gal
