    I worked at US Department of Health and Human Services

    Pros

    collaborative approach to help consumers; not micromanaged so you're able to be independent with your work; decent pay; great hours; room for creativity; supervisors are very organized and helpful; offered paid internship

    Cons

    Some employees put their pride before the needs of their clients. This isn't necessarily a dig to the institution itself, but hidden jabs/disrespect occurred. Some people are very strict when it comes to titles and feel that you can be overstepping when you are trying to help. Be mindful of the work atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some training regarding cultural sensitivity would be helpful in many of the human services settings. This isn't only because of the diverse population that is served, but also because of the diversity of the staff as well. Incorporating staff training every once in awhile would be beneficial.
