    Pros

    Some professional staff, but they should move on. There cause is of course good, but question whether they make sustaining change.

    Cons

    Environment is disrespectful. Supervisors lack professional ethics which they should have and don't even have basic work habits. Staff were harassed. They are all about cultural differences but there is a level of professionalism that should be set for all. Even swearing and yelling is allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Remove supervisors who hold no abilities and create a professional and healthy work environment.


  7. Great job security, great benefits, great place to work.

    I worked at Arizona Department of Health Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are outstanding. The people you work with are dedicated to serving the greater good and it shows. Option to telecommute offered to employees who request it and have a position that is conducive to telecommuting. Some managers are fantastic, others micromanage, but that's to be expected in any office environment. Stellar place to work and I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Pay isn't competitive. Some managers micromanage, which is irritating. Inter-office politics can be draining.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees the space, tools and confidence to do their job well. Micromanaging only results in employees doing what's necessary in order to avoid getting written up. Have faith in your employees and they'll do the same.

    Great opportunities for gaining experience but can only go so far.

    Pros

    One advantage of working for the government is that there are always opportunties to gain new experience. Other employees are usually willing to share knowledge and one often gets to work on a wide variety of projects. If one is willing to take on additional assignments there are plenty of opportunities for advancement and additional experience. Very good benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    One can only go so far. Entry level and midmanagement positions are fairly competitive with other jobs in health care, but once a certain level is reached, compensation is limited. All of the various levels of policies and proceedures can also be frustraiting at times.

    Advice to Management

    With limited options available for rewarding high performing employees, must find additional ways to make jobs attractive.
