    Pros

    Clients are very sweet and it is good to make them feel like someone does care. The elderly love the idea that they get to stay in there own home and get the help they need.

    Cons

    nothing really to say. Im satisfied. I love my job and wish I was able to make everyone happy and able to stay in there own home as long as they are able to but there is only one of me.

    Advice to Management

    More hours and maybe some vacation time. And big raises, but everyone wants that. So I am a happy employee.

    Pros

    Great training and opportunities to advance. You get to work regular hours, and get paid holidays, paid sick leave, and paid vacation. The benefits are good, you get health/dental/vision but your dependents aren't covered unless you pay more.

    Cons

    It's the government so everything is "policy and procedure." Office politics involved as far as who gets promoted though so sometimes your supervisor is someones "friend."

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up a little on policy and procedure, it doesn't have to be by the book all of the time. Especially in Health and Human services.

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation relative to other employers within the field. Challenging work. Supportive peers. Potential for a decent work-life balance (relative to the private sector). Good benefits- specifically, health benefits, vac/holiday/sick leave, maternity/paternity leave, some educational reimbursement, flexible schedules. Feedback about job performance, and recognition for effective job performance, is good. There are definitely opportunities for advancement and/or a change in career path- opportunities exist both vertically and horizontally. Job security is very good, as is the opportunity to supplement base pay via overtime, depending on the division/program.

    Cons

    Department is underfunded by state government, creating a situation where workloads are often unmanageable. Ultimately, senior management seems to exacerbate the situation by instituting policies that add to the workload without providing adequate corresponding support. The situation creates significant turnover and dysfunction. The work is stressful by nature; however, the overall dysfunction adds to the stress, which is unacceptable to many and creates a low morale among those who remain.

    Advice to Management

    When feasible, implement feedback from junior management and supervisors regarding the impact various policies have on workload and the ability to adequately deliver services. Doing so would greatly improve employee retention, morale, and effectiveness.
