    I have been working at NY Insurance Fund full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The benefits are great, co-workers are generally good people. Were it not for the benefits I would be long gone.

    Cons

    Not a lot of mobility, and you have to be on the civil service list and reachable to even be considered for a position you qualify for, unless you know someone in a position of power (political appointee)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff input and build morale in the office.

    I have been working at NY Insurance Fund

    Pros

    Some of my co-workers, decent salary.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. Lack of communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like the adults they are and not children who may spill the family secrets. Involve the people who do the actual work to have a voice in the decision making as it is they who are affected.
