Current Employee - Benefit Authorizer in Philadelphia, PA

I have been working at Social Security Administration full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Can wortk credit hours; decent pay

Cons

I have worked here for over 20 years:
- Promotions are based on (a) if a family works (or worked) in the building, (b) you are friends with a manager, (c) you clear cases off a list, even if it is done wrong.
- If you haven't had a promotion in 5 years, you never will.
- All excess work loads are dumped on the Benefit Authorizers
- Mgmt asks for ways to improve the system, then immediately gives you reasons why the improvements can'tbe done
- Leave requests are not done on a true seniority basis - it is done on a "roster system". The list was recently re-ordered and based by seniority, however, a 2-year employee can still bump a 30-year employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing I say will ever change anything because they are all just playing a game.

    job security and management is good about taking time off when needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate to upper management and Congress that our disability and immigration policies provide little incentive to return to work and become a contributing member of society. As an employee it is difficult to see so many entrenched in the culture of SSI for generations.
