    I worked at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time

    Pros

    Many dedicated professionals who seem to care about their clients and community. Reasonable salaries and opportunity to work overtime. the union is accessible and supportive.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited to those who fit the mold and do not rock the boat. If you are not one of the favored, efforts are made to discredit you which can be quite disconcerting.

    Emphasis is often placed on meeting statistical goals while the reasons for the work, I.e. The people being served, can get forgotten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct exit interviews. Hold APMs accountable for turnover in staff. If people are leaving some regions in droves consider that you may have a management problem.
