Pros

You will work with awesome colleagues, and you can advance if you get the right connections and continue your education past the bachelor's level.

Cons

The pay for Arkansas public employees is a total joke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to pay your people more for the headaches they put up with.

    I worked at State of Arkansas full-time

    Pros

    Ability to 'make your own schedule', work with children & families, make a positive impact, the end result is usually rewarding & worth it

    Cons

    Often viewed as the enemy, it's hard to not get emotionally attached, it is stressful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to actually listen to what your PA's are saying. They really do care about the children & families. Don't be so quick to just listen to your FSW's. Thank you!
