I have been working at State of Arizona

Pros

Benefit packages are good and offer a variety of options. Premiums are good compared to private industry. Before the economy tanked, it was nearly impossible to lose your job.

Cons

Management is often appointed based on political favors, and may not know a thing about the agency he/she is put in charge of. There is little transparency. Because of the economy and a ridiculously right-wing, bible-thumping legislature, jobs are left at the whims of others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put leaders in place that have training, proven competency in their field, and a plan and vision. Discourage micromanaging.

    I have been working at State of Arizona

    Pros

    You get to work with a variety of different social service agencies and have a chance to have a positive impact on peoples' lives

    Cons

    It's a very objective job where there is no right or wrong way to do things in any situation which makes the job rather ambiguous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are there for the well being of the families rather than those who are only concerned about their career progression.
