    Former Employee - Program Manager in Boston, MA

    I worked at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is the potential to assist clients and to do real good. Often there is exposure to cases that enable the use of a broad skill set.

    Cons

    The overlayering of supervisors and managers on the basis of political connections hampers advocacy for clients that do not meet a preconceived agenda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize a broader set of objectives. Empower case workers to apply assistance beyond a narrow performance matrix.
