Pros

The particular agency I work with is friendly and professional. Management empowers the employee to be able to do his or her job well. Customers are the focus. Consistency and fairness are the goals.

Cons

The same cons you would have in any government job. Limited opportunities for promotion or pay increases, and the base pay is probably lower than in the private sector. But the trade off is that you get to have a personal life and aren't expected to work 80 hours a week.

    Generally not a very motivating environment and very status quo.

    Pros

    Working with people with disabilities is rewarding. The agency staff really does care about they serve. They are committed to the clients and to the staff as well. It is a tough job but worth it.

    Cons

    There is very little money. Everyone is underpaid and there is nothing to be done about it because it is a public non profit which means it is broke and barely hanging on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try harder to compensate your troops. Morale is important and no one went there for the money they took the job because they want to help. Even if it is pizza once a month. Appreciate your staff.
