I have been working at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Pretty Good benefits, Rewarding work.

Cons

Low pay compared to private agencies. Internal promotional salary increase practices are not an incentive to stay with agency (higher entry salaries for external hires than those internally promoted)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Establish a better process for providing greater financial incentive for those who wish to advance within the agency.

    Pros

    There really are not any benefits to working for the State of Georgia Department of Human Resources. The benefits that once came with working a State job are now over. The DHR now contracts out their employment to temporary agencies that do not grant any benefits.

    Cons

    There are no benefits that come along with working with State Agencies anymore. If you work directly with the state, you get benefits, but not with the agencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring directly again and do not try to save money by cutting corners with temp agencies.

    Pros

    Decent benefits as far as time off and sick days, however the work load is so great that its hard to get the time you earned off

    Cons

    The state is notorious for not paying what a person is worth then they expect you to work twice as hard....I have been there for over five years with no raise....
