    I have been working at New York State Office of Mental Health full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Represent the state of New York; help people; union representation

    Cons

    Many of those who end up in management don't seem to be the most qualified. It's more of a 'who you know' kind of thing once you get past the civil service entry level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train new management. Many managers are hired from within, and although they may be good at the job, that doesn't mean they are good at training or managing people.

    I have been working at New York State Office of Mental Health

    Pros

    The benefits are great, there are few private organizations that provide a pension. There are opportunities for people to grow.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there has been a paradigm shift from positive movement, to bean counting and finger pointing. There is a new culture of "no!"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value those individuals who work hard.

    NYS OMH is a Great Place to work

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at New York State Office of Mental Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    salary increases, good benefits, pension is OK for newbies, nothing to brag about but at least you get vested after 10 yrs. If you are a good worker and have a good reputation for producing work that helps the system and being good at what you do, you can excel in your career within the OMH system..of course, as long as you have the academic credentials as well to meet those job req's.

    Cons

    civil jobs pay less than private

    Job security and potential to receive regular salary increases.

    Career advancement can be political.

    Hire qualfied interns would have demonstrated quality job performance during time given without salary. Also provide stipends throughout the students field placements for travel expenses.
