I worked at Florida Department of Health full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Really fulfilling work. Awesome leadership. Great benefits. DOH is huge so working conditions can very greatly, especially depending what part of public health you work in. I worked in HIV/AIDS Prevention and loved it. Job was so awesome that I occasionally regret quitting!

Cons

Can get really political. Pay raises are at the discretion of the Legislative branch and not merit based at all. Low pay compared to private sector.

    Cliquish and rife with favortism.

    I have been working at Florida Department of Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A nice property with parks and old oak trees. Located in a safe community. A cafeteria on campus and not too far from eating establishments. There is also a retention pond which is often visited by migrating Canadian geese.

    Cons

    Some folks in management may have the knowledge to do their jobs but not the wisdom, ethics, or personal integrity to be in such a position. Overall you may experience career stagnation and you will not gain any marketable skills. You may actually lose skills which are valuable in the private sector. Try to obtain positions with duties which are also valuable in the private sector, such as contract management, HR, or grant writing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to recognize and combat favortism and discrimination, and not participate in or perpetuate such practices.
