    Pros

    There are not many pros. The best thing about working there is the weekend.

    Cons

    The clients are not held responsible. Management has no clue.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like you know more than the front line workers.

    Pros

    Great place to do nothing and yet you can get a decent salary and benefits, there is a lot to take for granted here if you are at the right spot. Gives you a lot of time to have a life on your own.

    Cons

    Poorly run bureaucratic organization. Excess of employees, many need to retire and get laid off as they cannot perform their duties. Too much crony-ism, incompetent supervisors, managers and higher ups. As laid back as the environment is, most workers are moody, depressed and gossipy, many have very little work to do and their duties are often unnecessary and some choose to do nothing at all while some employees have a lot to do but work is not recognized and valued. Lot of inside crimes going on. Those who put effort are not valued as there is a hierarchy chain in place with incompetent supervisors and higher-ups that has to report directly. Have some self-respect and don't work here, you will downgrade yourself. There are no incentives in this system and some try to abuse it.

    Advice to Management

    Save taxpayers money and cut back on your staff, make organization more centralized and less bureaucratic. Be more proactive in worker's evaluation and improvements. Appoint the right people and set some guidelines.

    Pros

    9-5
    for the most part friendly people
    helping nyers

    Cons

    a lot of the supervisors are incompetent. they get promoted because they've been there a long time, not because they are good. it's also hard to get fired there so there are a lot of lazy and super unprofessional people working there. i've interned 2 summers in HRA and only liked the finance unit as they were the only ones that actually did their jobs in a timely fashion. with IREA/ Claims and Collections, they were rude and hardly did any work. i'd hate to have to go through them as a client.

    Advice to Management

    get better employees

    Pros

    . As such a large agency, a lot of agency policies and procedures are available via agency intranet, etc. It is up to the employee to pursue to know and understand the agency rules and employee rights, etc.
    . If management likes you, there is room for job stability and growth.
    . The seasoned staff are more aware of how to "go along to get along", because they've seen a lot, etc.

    Cons

    1) The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) Program is insane from top down. If starting at this agency/ program as a probationary staff (civil service) it is very risky. Ultimately your job depends if your supervisor/director likes you or not.
    2) Too many tasks expected for level of job title/ compensation, especially for supervisors. Work overload given as normal practice. Can lead to stress, low morale, and negativity in the workplace environment.
    3) Stressful work environment, with unrealistic expectations from upper management (i.e. project timeframes).
    4) Disconnect between knowledge of agency commissioner and executive directors (i.e. black n white view), and how the work really goes (complex cases, grey areas).

    Advice to Management

    Investigate OCSE program for EEO violations and rampant psychological abuse as a top down encouraged practice/ strategy to eliminate undesirable/uncooperative staff.
