    I have been working at Louisiana Department Of Health And Hospitals as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    DHH mirrors Louisiana in its tight-knittedness. People will talk with you and establish a relationship with you quickly. This is good because you will find that your colleagues are connected to other organizations and departments both similar and different within Louisiana and outside of Louisiana. There are also a lot of events that are held and will expand your network.

    Cons

    Challenges are similar to any state agency. There are some bureaucratic limitations, but it doesn't impede with work that much as far as I can tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Louisiana Department Of Health And Hospitals

    Pros

    Flexible with leave request.
    I guess it's common in State Government.

    Cons

    Politics.
    Promotions are not based on performance.
    Unqualified supervisors and managers.
    Unnecessary travel and waste of State money.
    People buy computers and equipments without knowing of the proper use

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from private/corporate industry and real world. Just do not let people around you to influence your decision. Get feedback from the employees working somewhere in the office and not trying to cheer you all the time.

    I have been working at Louisiana Department Of Health And Hospitals

    Pros

    Job security and retirement pension plan. 15 paid holidays and 24 to 48 accumulated vacation/sick leave days. Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Minimal, slow raises in pay. Not much chance of moving up in your department. Extra hard work and dedication goes unoticed or without praise/compensation. Allow workers more opportunities to move

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge extra efforts and dedicated work ethic in your employees. Provide positive feedback to individuals ASAP and explain better and more efficient ways to do a task, . Suggest and encourage workers to move up within the department and promote from within.
