Current Employee - Health Care Coordinator I in Las Vegas, NV

I have been working at State of Nevada full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Flexible schedule, holidays off and good environment. Opportunities to help others and stay involved in the ever changing government policies.

Cons

Low Salary, and furlough days that must be taken. There is very little chance for advancement in the Las Vegas area. Most senior positions are in Carson City, Nevada. You would need to move for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really love my manager, just continue to be positive and supportive. They have been fair and constantly flexible with scheduling and the policy changes we must keep up with.

    I worked at State of Nevada full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Holidays, furloughs were actually kind of nice, decent vacation time.

    Cons

    Direct supervision is just fine but senior management is a mess. The CSE manager I had for the first few years of my employment was a nightmare - very mean spirited, rude, and played favorites. Such traits would have been merely tolerable had she not been an utterly incompetent beast who had no business managing anyone. Nobody was ever on the same page - it was chaotic. Central Office made things much worse by expecting workers and supervisors to jump when they said so - I got the feeling that most of the people in charge only got there because of WHO they know, not WHAT they know. Things got better the last few months of employment because an actual competent, mentally sane office manager was hired to oversee the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people based on their talent, not how much you like them.

    Extensive training that doesn't train you for real world work

    Pros

    There is pension to look forward to if you can stomach 30 years.

    Cons

    Not enough pay for what you have to deal with. Case load is unreasonable. Despite being a "trainee" for a year, once you get to an office, you are on your own and actually getting any guidance is impossible despite the constant aura of micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach
