    AHCA

    Government Analyst (Current Employee) Tallahassee, FL

    Pros• AHCA has an excellent work environment.
    • The work done at AHCA is interesting and has the potential to positively affect health care choices in Florida.
    • AHCA provides very flexible work schedules for individuals seeking college degrees and individuals with young children.
    • Employees seeking graduated degrees (non-professional degrees, e.g. MBA, Law) can receive state tuition waivers for up to six semester hours each semester.
    • The benefits are excellent and quite affordable.
    • AHCA’s leave policy is generous, new employees receive up 13 vacation days and 13 sick days annually, which roll over each year. Total annual leave days increase after five and ten years of state government service. Employees are allowed to keep up to 9 weeks of vacation leave and an unlimited amount of sick leave. Employees also receive one personal day per year.

    Cons• Advancement may be limited for some job classes.
    • Each job promotions require a one year probationary period.
    • Salaries are much less than comparable private sector salaries.
    • Cost of living raises are dependent upon approval by the governor and state legislature.
    • Merit raises are difficult to negotiate because of budgetary constraints.

    Health care for elderly and/or handicapped not adequately monitored

    Rns (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    ProsProcesses in place that could ensure adequate care to all citizens utilizing government funds for care.

    ConsStaff not allowed enough training prior to going into field without mentor. Both field office supervisory staff and headquarter administrative staff fail to apply all state and federal regulations across the board. Many times politically favored facilities are not held accountable. When long time surveyors identify noncompliance in one of the favored facilities, the citations are deleted by administration regardless of solid and undeniable documentation supporting the noncompliance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps there should be actual "Medically Trained" administrative staff guiding the Agency for Healthcare Administration, ie; physicians, nurses, therapists, pharmacists.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a bad place for benefits, but you won't get paid

    Regulatory Supervisor (Current Employee) Tallahassee, FL

    ProsBasically this is a State job and everyone knows the pros and cons. You will have relative security with keeping your job, but you will not be paid like in the private sector. Also, the benefits are not bad for providing for a family.

    ConsYou don't really have anywhere to go and grow within the Agency. There are a lot of lateral moves. Also, you only learn how to do the work here once you get on... so you basically have to start from the bottom up because the programs and applications that are used are not very transferable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would tell management to pay attention their employees more and not think they are above them. There is a lot of red tape and useless protocol. The agency would be a lot more productive if the management coult think like the private sector does. There needs to be motivation.

    Low Pay but Good Benefits

    Medical Health Care Program Analyst (Current Employee) Tallahassee, FL

    ProsGood benefits. Agency is mostly laid-back, business casual dress. Some positions, like mine, allow a for a variable work week. I work 4-10 hours days and have every Friday off. Not a high pressure environment, overall decent work environment.

    ConsPay is low compared to private sector. As with most state jobs, it's not how much you know as much as WHO you know. Not much reward based on performance. Pretty much never any raises. Would have to change positions to get a raise with the State. Good for stable income, but bad if you expect to "work your way up".

    Advice to Senior ManagementHolly Benson is doing a good job. No complaints about upper senior management. Most complaints are of direct supervisors
