"I have been working here around seven months and the environment is constantly changing due to a high turnover. Poorly selected staff; poorly evaluated current processes and procedures; poorly executed change management; and poorly managed people have resulted in a poorly evolved reduction in the workload. The situation was bad when I started. But it has only gotten worse since no one is concerned with listening to what is happening before they just make changes that result in an even worse situation."

"As a scientific programmer I had been working at National Human Genome Center at HU for 6 years. It was formed around year 2000.This center is supported from grants and from the HU. It has a diversified leadership and stuff with mission for human genome research especially for Africans and African Americans around the world. As the leadership changed dramatically, the center is now in the basic level in development."
