I think generally satisfaction with the job varies dramatically between bureaus, so my experience may be worse than some

Researcher (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH

I have been working at Ohio Department of Health

ProsSalary, time off, and benefits are generally very good
Staff can be very passionate about their work
Schedules are generally flexible
Union protection (for now) is a plus

ConsExperience the typical frustrations with bureaucracy
Nearly impossible to move up
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
Extremely low morale
Many staff are given more work and are more competent than many managers

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
