    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Commonwealth of Pennsylvania full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    very organized and structured. excellent and intensive training. excellent benefits. salary too low for the level of responsibility i carried. very stable organization. fairness maintained by civil service system.

    Cons

    understaffed. pay too low. overworked. volume of work too high per caseworker. some systems were outdated. my unit had very few intellectual people. could be very petty. management in Delaware County was incompetent and too strict. Very nepotistic.

    Advice to Management

    hire more caseworkers. make caseloads lighter. too serious. lighten up. appreciate the caseworkers and clerks more. stop driving everyone too hard. stop showing favoritism and promote more equality in treatment of employees. be more friendly. allow more freedom among the employees. treat clients with more respect.
