Pros

You get to interact with your client on a very personal level. You aren't always stuck in one place dong the same thing all day. Driving around, running errands, etc, breaks the monotony of the job.

Cons

A very high level of personal responsibility to your client for a very low rate of pay, especially when compared to similar, privatized local jobs. Based on some client's needs, you spend most of your days and even some evenings with them. The hours aren't as flexible as you may initially be led to believe.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Check in with your employees and clients once in a while. You may be surprised at what you learn. Half of your employees don't even show up for their assignments and some of their clients are simply splitting the employee's paychecks with them. The state is being bilked in this way more often than not.
