    I worked at State of Michigan full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay at the entry level position

    Cons

    Office Politics is flat out awful, Too Much Unnecessary Paperwork, Never Enough Time to See People on Caseload, Management is a Huge Joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut your employees some slack! You don't have the slightest idea of what workers encounter out in the working field. Each situation that the worker is involved in has the potential to turn volatile very quickly. The worker witnesses first hand children that have suffered severe physical abuse and/or mental abuse by their parents who are supposed to provide them with a stable and thriving home enviornment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly seek to understand what life looks like on the ground level. This is where your department is being made or broke... upper management in Lansing is out of touch with real life.
