    Pros

    Dedicated staff, appreciative clients, great place to live

    Cons

    Deep financial crisis since 2008

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Government organizations need a basic amount of secure funding for core positions to maintain staff. Nevada is not an easy place to hire staff into positions which require significant technical training.

    Pros

    40 hours, Mon-Fri. Government work, and this office is fairly immune from layoffs. Base line employees are great people to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management, starting from the top and down to the first line supervisors are incompetent and micro managers. This poor work environment is supported by all top level managers, with an attitude of "if you don't like it, leave". No adjustment of work day for family issues that arise. No positive feedback on work performance. This all goes back to poor supervisor training. Does not care about victims whatsoever. Very political. If you complain, you get targeted and forced out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yea, it's an elected position, but you need to treat your employees better who will then treat the public and victims better. The word is out on this office, which is why there are always job opportunities here, more than any other State office.
