I worked at Ohio Department of Health full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits and opportunity for continued education. An opportunity to work with dedicated public health experts from many fields who really come together in a crises or emergency.

Cons

As with any government entity, accountability and red tape provide more than their share of roadblocks in accomplishing any task.

    Experience the typical frustrations with bureaucracy

    Our bureau (my unit, particularly) was routinely over worked and understaffed
    We have been under a wage freeze for almost four years
    Expectations are not always clearly communicated
    Some favoritism

    Many staff are given more work and are more competent than many managers

    Do not keep staff in the dark about decisions and changes
    Change HR standards to allow more flexibility on behalf of the hiring manager
